USPSC Program Officer (Multiple Positions)

USAID/Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance

About the organization

INTRODUCTION

Yemen has long been one of the poorest countries in the Middle East, with social and economic indicators among the worst in the world. Political instability, civil unrest, environmental degradation, and lack of capacity within the national government created a context where even moderate hazards have significant negative impact on the Yemeni populace. OFDA, along with DCHA/Office of Food for Peace (FFP), have been responding to crises in Yemen since 2011. In March of 2015, civil war broke out and, for conflict-affected populations in Yemen, conditions within the country deteriorated even further. OFDA is responsible for facilitating humanitarian coordination, information management and security support to ensure relief agencies are able to provide a rapid and strategic response to identify needs on behalf of the USG.
