Abstract
This report on the Macroeconomics of Poverty Reduction in Yemen is part of a global
UNDP-supported project that started in 2001 and has grown to encompass policyoriented
research, advisory services and capacity development in 25 developing countries.
Among the Arab States, UNDP has supported similar studies in Morocco, Sudan
and Syria.
The primary audience is national policymakers and the report aims to present them
with practical policy options and alternatives and to broaden the national dialogue on
such choices. The policy analysis within the report delineates the major ‘stylized facts’
of the economy and explores its responsiveness to the macroeconomic framework – so
as to permit informed judgments on the most suitable alternative policies. Thus the
overriding objective of is to offer policymakers a choice of feasible options for propoor
and pro-growth economic policies and begin a process of strengthening national
capacity to accelerate progress towards the MDGs –particularly the first goal on poverty
reduction.
