Yemen: challenges to housing, land and property rights
Created: 14/04/2023 +


Millions of people in Yemen experience years-long or multiple displacements. Sustainable solutions for IDPs in the country include returns to their area and community of origin, relocation to another part of the country, or integration into the host community where they have taken refuge. Any long- or short-term efforts towards a solution must take into consideration people’s housing, land, and property (HLP) rights, which refer to their right to obtain and occupy a safe and secure home in which to live in peace and dignity, affirm socially or legally recognized entitlements to land and refer to the right to own property and decide how to use it.
