Building peace in the minds of men and women

Extrabudgetary Projects on Freedom of Expression - Office of the Special Envoy for Yemen


Office of the Special Envoy for Yemen

Since its establishment in 2011, the Office of the Special Envoy for Yemen has been working with relevant stakeholders in Yemen and the region to stop the violence and bring the country back to a peaceful and orderly political process. The Special Envoy is leading the UN’s efforts to build consensus towards a political agreement in order to end the fighting in the country.


UNESCO is leading innovative projects around the world thanks to voluntary contributions it has received from donors in support of freedom of expression.



As parties to the Yemeni conflict meet in Sweden to negotiate a road map for peace, how can we ensure people in Yemen are kept informed and updated on the outcomes of these talks?




Voluntary contributions have strengthened UNESCO’s work in freedom of expression in dozens of countries around the world.
