Yemen: Humanitarian crisis overview (as of 9 Oct 2014) [EN/AR]


Yemen faces a large scale humanitarian emergency caused by years of under-development, poverty, lack of basic services and the absence of state authority and rule of law in many areas. At the same time, thousands of Yemeni families have had to flee their homes due to conflict this year alone. Sustainable solutions to these long-term problems require progress on political and economic reform. Meanwhile, immediate support is needed to reduce humanitarian suffering.
