UNHCR-assisted spontaneous return for Somali refugees in Yemen to Somalia continued in 2018, bringing the total number of Somalis voluntarily returning to 2,270 persons.

In the absence of a political solution, the humanitarian situation in Yemen continues to deteriorate. In search of safety and livelihoods, over 2.8 million people continue to be on the move in Yemen. With their safety nets depleted, as savings dwindle and remittances from abroad dry up, more people are moving to makeshift and spontaneous settlements and are turning to negative coping strategies for survival. This includes increased child labour and early marriage. The added stresses on host communities are also increasing as the economy collapses.
