Access to Water and Electricity (SDG 6 & SDG 7) (1)
In rural areas of Yemen, 64.2 per cent of households including at least one person with a disability used electricity as their main source of energy for lighting. For households with no person with a disability, the rate stood at 68.1 per cent. In urban areas, virtually all households used electricity, and no statistically significant difference could be discerned based on disability. Similar data are available for Egypt, Jordan and Iraq, but no statistically significant differences between households with and without at least one person with a disability were found.
45.7 per cent of households in rural Yemen with at least one person with a disability used improved water sources, whereas the rate for households with no persons with a disability reached 50.4 per cent. In urban areas, the rates for households with and without at least one person with a disability were 71.9 per cent compared to 79.4 percent.
