KEY DEVELOPMENTS

  • On January 22, the U.N. formally launched the Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (YHRP) for 2013. The YHRP appeals for approximately $716 million to finance 190 projects through 89 implementing organizations—a funding increase of 22 percent from the 2012 appeal, which requested $585 million. Approximately 50 percent of the 2013 YHRP requests comprise activities that address food insecurity, the U.N. reports.

  • According to UNHCR, approximately 107,500 refugees and migrants traveled from the Horn of Africa to Yemen in 2012, the largest influx since UNHCR began tracking regional population movements in Yemen in 2006. UNHCR recorded the previous record high in 2011, when more than 103,000 people arrived in Yemen.

  • USAID/OFDA recently committed nearly $3 million to address health, nutrition, and WASH needs and support humanitarian coordination and information management in Yemen.
