Yemen: Humanitarian crisis overview (as of 9 Oct 2014) [EN/AR]

Yemen faces a large scale humanitarian emergency caused by years of under-development, poverty, lack of basic services and the absence of state authority and rule of law in many areas. At the same time, thousands of Yemeni families have had to flee their homes due to conflict this year alone. Sustainable solutions to these long-term problems require progress on political and economic reform. Meanwhile, immediate support is needed to reduce humanitarian suffering.

Yemen: Humanitarian Snapshot (September 2014) [EN/AR]

September saw political turmoil and an outbreak of conflict in Sana'a claiming some 274 lives and leaving 470 wounded. Beyond treating casualties, protection needs, psychosocial counselling and a need for removal of explosive remnants of war there was limited humanitarian need resulting from the conflict. Despite the uncertain political situation in Yemen there has been a marked increase in the influx of migrants and refugees from Africa - in excess of 10,500 people in August. The return of Yemeni economic migrants from Saudi Arabia continues - nearly 700,000 had been expelled by July.

OCHA Yemen Flash Update 2: Clashes in Al Jawf and Sanaa, and humanitarian response (2 October 2014)

However, IDPs have reportedly not returned home in significant numbers due to concerns that fighting could resume. About 1,200 IDP families (8,400 people) in Al Jawf are receiving basic assistance from humanitarian partners.
