report Oxfam

Vital food imports have plunged below half the level the country’s needs

Yemen’s population is at risk of catastrophic hunger as food imports continue to plunge and on current trends the war torn country will effectively run out of things to eat in a few months, Oxfam warned today.

06 Dec 2016 description

Background

The situation in Yemen has deteriorated significantly since March 2015, with a dramatic escalation of violence and armed conflict, further compounding the already precarious humanitarian situation. OCHA estimates that as many as 18,8 people are in need of some kind of humanitarian or protection assistance, including 10,3 million who are in acute need1 . The scale of the needs and the scope of the emergency response have required a large, multi-agency and multi-sector response to be undertaken.
