In March 2015, conflict erupted in Yemen and thousands of refugees and migrants fled to neighbouring countries, including Oman, Saudi Arabia, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Somalia and Sudan. While the number of new arrivals from Yemen remain low in 2016, the ongoing humanitarian crisis inside the country remains dire. At the same time, large numbers of refugees and migrants from the Horn of Africa make the journey into Yemen.

In the absence of a political solution, the humanitarian situation in Yemen continues to deteriorate. In search of safety and livelihoods, over 2.8 million people continue to be on the move in Yemen. With their safety nets depleted, as savings dwindle and remittances from abroad dry up, more people are moving to makeshift and spontaneous settlements and are turning to negative coping strategies for survival. This includes increased child labour and early marriage. The added stresses on host communities are also increasing as the economy collapses.
