In the absence of a political solution, violations and abuses continue to occur in the context of widespread insecurity and in disregard of international humanitarian and human rights law. Yemen’s economy is now near collapse following 16 months of conflict and import and export restrictions.
Across Yemen’s 22 governorates, Humanitarians have reached close to 4 million people with some form of humanitarian protection or assistance since January 2016. The needs, however, are becoming more acute, particularly among the 2.8 million men, women, and children that have been displaced in search of safety, security and livelihoods.
The US$1.8 billion appeal has received a little over 26 per cent of funding.
