SUMMARY

The Humanitarian Dashboard summarizes how many people have been reached with assistance from the start of the year until the end of the reporting period, as measured against targets set out in the 2014-15 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (YHRP). This measure serves as a general barometer of progress. It includes people reached with any type of service without distinction to types of services provided or types of needs met. As a result, several clusters report having reached more people than originally targeted.

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, conflict has displaced thousands of Yemeni families and affected many more. During Yemen’s political crisis, humanitarian partners are committed to stay and deliver assistance to alleviate humanitarian suffering. Immediate support is needed for the Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan to enable principled assistance to people in need in Yemen to the Yemeni people.

Donor contributions are monetary donations provided by Governments and the private sector. This mechanism gives them the opportunity to pool their unearmarked contributions to a specific country. With these pooled donations, CBPFs offer rapid and flexible financing instruments to scale up humanitarian operations, increase humanitarian access, and strengthen our partnerships with local and international NGOs and UN agencies. This complements the overall humanitarian response based on affected people's needs identified under country-specific strategic response plans.

KEY HUMANITARIAN ISSUES

An estimated 15.9 million people – or 61 per cent of the population – need some form of humanitarian assistance in Yemen, an increase of 8 per cent since last year. The rise is primarily due to expanding conflict, growing arrivals of migrants and refugees, and population growth in areas with poor access to even the most basic services.

Food insecurity and malnutrition
