The project were spitted in two
components, the first Human Rights related, the second -
our part - a technical task, oriented to strengthen the
capacity of the Civil Register.
Our project counterpart in the Yemen Project was the
Ministry of Interior, and there especially the

Civil Register, which is more a population register in
the definition by the tasks of the institution.
Mainly they are currently involved in the emission of
biometric based ID-cards – means biometric enrolment for
the application and non biometric cards. Intension is to
close so the existing registration gap, especially in
the northern part of the country in a verified manner.

The mission was affected by the bad relation to
the EUD project manager, a lady with many experience in NGO work, but not
technically and by content on the necessary level. Stating from semantically
problems of technical issues until the lack of understanding the
organisation of the register, which is since years more a population
register as a simple civil register.
