Yemen: Humanitarian Snapshot (July 2014)

preview

Food insecurity remains a major source of vulnerability - a result of poverty, insecurity and dwindling natural resources. According to preliminary results of the 2014 Comprehensive Food Security Survey, the food situation in some areas - like Sana'a, Marib and Raymah - has improved considerably, while in other areas - such as Shabwah - it has severely deteriorated. The net result is that food insecurity has barely improved: 41 per cent of Yemenis today are food insecure, versus 45 per cent in 2011.
