FAO activated a Level 3 Emergency Response in Yemen on 14 July 2015 given the urgent need to scale up its response to the large-scale impacts of the crisis on food security and nutrition. A Humanitarian System-Wide Level-3 Emergency has been active since 1 July 2015.
12.9 million people – close to 50 percent of the population – face Emergency and Crisis levels of food insecurity: 21% increase since 2014. (Source: Integrated Food Security Phase Classification [IPC] Indicative Analysis, 1 June–31 August 2015).

Prospects for world cereal production in 2015 remain favourable, despite recent adverse weather conditions in some regions and continuing concerns over El Niño, with the global cereal supply and demand outlook for 2015/16 pointing to generally stable conditions.
Situation Générale en juin 2015, Prévision jusqu'à ’mi-août 2015
La situation relative au Criquet pèlerin est restée calme en juin. De bonnes pluies et au moins deux générations seront nécessaires pour que les effectifs augment cet été dans les aires de reproduction estivale traditionnelles du Sahel septentrional d'Afrique de l'ouest et du Soudan ainsi que de part et d'autre de la frontière indo-pakistanaise.
Situation acridienne toujours calme dans tous les pays
De bonnes pluies et au moins deux générations seront nécessaires pour que les effectifs augmentent cet été dans les aires de reproduction estivale traditionnelles du Sahel septentrional d’Afrique de l’ouest et du Soudan ainsi que de part et d’autre de la frontière indo-pakistanaise. Jusqu’à présent, les pluies tardent à tomber sur le Sahel, sauf dans le centre du Niger et l’est du Mali, alors que les pluies de mousson ont débuté de une à trois semaines plus tôt que la normale en Inde et au Pakistan.
FOOD SECURITY SNAPSHOT
Limited progress made towards attenuating conflict and resolving political instability since last FAO Special Alert on 15 April 2015

Start of 2015 main cropping season in April coincided with escalation of conflict thus compromising outcome
•The ten (10) Governorates, Aden, AlDhale’e, Lahj, Taiz, Abyan, Sa’ada, Hajjah, Hodeida, Al Bayda, Shabwa are facing a food insecurity Emergency (IPC Phase 4). These governorates are currently among the worst affected by the conflict.
•Nine governorates are classified as facing a food security “Crisis” or IPC Phase 3: Amran, Dhamar, Sana’a, Sana’a, city, Ibb, Mareb, Rayma, Al Mahweet, Al Jawf.
Sana’a - A new study released today by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the UN World Food Programme (WFP) and the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation in Yemen (MoPIC), on behalf of other technical partners, found that at least 6 million people in Yemen are severely food insecure and are in urgent need of emergency food and life-saving assistance – a sharp increase from the last quarter of 2014.
Situation Générale en mai 2015, Prévision jusqu'à ’mi-juillet 2015
La situation relative au Criquet pèlerin est restée calme en mai. Aucune reproduction significative n'a eu lieu cette année dans les aires de reproduction printanière de l'Afrique du nord ouest, de la péninsule arabique et de l’Asie du sud-ouest, ou la végétation a continue a se dessécher.
Desert Locust situation remains calm in all countries
No significant breeding occurred this year in the spring breeding areas of Northwest Africa, the Arabian Peninsula and Southwest Asia where vegetation continues to dry out.
General Situation during May 2015 Forecast until mid-July 2015
The Desert Locust situation remained calm during May. No significant breeding occurred this year in the spring breeding areas of Northwest Africa, the Arabian Peninsula and Southwest Asia where vegetation continues to dry out. During the forecast period, low numbers of solitarious adults are likely to appear in parts of the vast summer breeding areas in the northern Sahel, stretching from Mauritania to western Eritrea as well as along both sides of the Indo-Pakistan border.
FOOD SECURITY SNAPSHOT
Conflict escalation and displacements resulted in serious disruptions in market, trade and livelihood activities, exacerbating already precarious food insecurity situation in the country
2015 cropping season has coincided with escalation of conflict thus compromising outcome
More than half of Yemen’s population (61 percent out of 25.9 million people) is estimated in need of humanitarian assistance
More than $8 million needed to support farmers during crucial cropping season
15 April 2015, Rome - Amidst escalating conflict at a crucial time in the country’s cropping season, almost 11 million people in Yemen are severely food insecure and millions more are at risk of not meeting their basic food needs, FAO said today.
FAO has further raised its estimate of the 2014 world cereal production and its forecast for global cereal stocks. Early prospects for cereal supplies in 2015/16 are mostly favourable, partly sustained by large stocks accumulated over the previous two seasons.
FAO’s first forecast for global wheat production in 2015 indicates a likely small contraction, mostly reflecting an expected decline in Europe from last year’s record output.
