Yemen: Key economic incentives of peace
Created: 14/05/2022 +


On 1 April 2022, the UN Special Envoy for Yemen Hans Grundberg announced that the main warring parties had agreed to a two-month truce starting 2 April, to last until 2 June 2022. The declared truce followed the unilateral ceasefires that the DFA and the Saudi-led coalition announced a few days before. The truce includes a halt to air, ground, and maritime hostilities within Yemen and across borders. Other key components include permitting 18 fuel vessels to enter and unload at Al Hodeidah port during the initial two-month truce and authorising two commercial flights per week between Sana’a and regional capitals (such as Cairo and Amman). The parties also agreed to discuss the easing of movement restrictions in Taiz. The current truce may extend beyond the initial two-month period.
