As of November 2014, IDMC estimates that there were 334,000 internally displaced people in Yemen, most of them located in the country’s north.

IDMC bases its estimate on figure made available by the UN Agency for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) which is in turn derived from the number of IDPs registered by the Government’s IDP Executive Unit and UNHCR as of 30 September 2014 (OCHA, 7 November 2014).
