Yemen: Humanitarian Snapshot (August 2014)

preview

The humanitarian crisis in Yemen continues to be characterised by conflict, political instability, extreme poverty, lack of basic services, weak rule of law, and impact of natural disasters. Consequently, an estimated 14.7 million people need some form of humanitarian aid. About 10.1 million live in governorates with high food insecurity and malnutrition. Humanitarian partners have scaled-up the response, but funding and access remain key challenges.

Yemen: Humanitarian Snapshot - Population Movements (August 2014)

Population movement is a major contributor to the crisis in Yemen, as people on the move often face greater difficulties in meeting their basic needs. Migrants, IDPs and refugees are also exposed to gross violations of their human rights. Several waves of conflict, insecurity and lack of access have made it extremely difficult to accurately estimate new displacements and needs.

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.
