Yemen: Strengthening the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research

The main objective of the project is to introduce a new governance model to the governance of the higher education and scientific research (HESR) sector by promoting ‘steering’ as opposed to ‘controlling’ the sector and to build capacity at the MoHESR to effectively implement a revised mandate.

The project has two main components:

1) Institution building:

2) Capacity building: to write a plan to upgrade MoHESR staff members so as to allow the Ministry to confidently employ its new mandate
