Responsive Governance Project (RGP)
RGP was designed to strengthen government institutions at the national and local levels to help them improve the delivery of public services while encouraging more citizen participation in the political process. The program is also intended to facilitate more equitable socioeconomic development by strengthening public policies and institutions that will contribute to helping to mitigate key drivers of instability in Yemen. This is expected to result in a more equitable, representative, transparent, accountable, responsive and reliable Yemeni government that meets the needs of its citizens and especially its most vulnerable citizens. In working at the central government level, the project is to increase the ability of the Republic of Yemen Government (ROYG) to address the causes of discontent in underserved areas of the country, including USAID’s eight targeted vulnerable governorates: Amran, Al Jawf, Marib, Shabwah, Abyan, Al Dhale’e, Lahj, and Aden.
- Provide basic services to its most vulnerable citizens;
- Analyze, develop and implement laws and policies;
- Become a more accountable and transparent government; and
