SANA'A, Dec. 23 (Saba) - Yemen and the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) have discussed the possibility of providing solar energy to rural and semi-urban areas to help the implementation of agricultural projects by alternative energy sources.

The talks were made during a meeting on Tuesday gathered Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (SCMCHA) Abdul Mohsen Tawoos with Director of the Yemen Emergency Electricity Access Project (YEEAP) in rural and peri-urban areas at UNOPS Zeyad al-Jaberi.

Tawoos stressed the need to pay attention to rural and peri-urban areas in order to promote the agricultural and service sector, saying the alternative energy is one of the first steps to enhance the other sectors in these areas.

In return, al-Jaberi stressed the keenness of the UNOPS to implement such projects to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni community, emphasizing the importance of coordination to face the challenges and move forward in achieving common goals in the agricultural field.
