The Yemen Humanitarian Fund (YHF) mobilises and channels resources to humanitarian partners to respond to the critical needs of millions of people affected by the devastating humanitarian crisis in Yemen. The YHF operates within the parameters of the Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP), with the objective to expand the delivery of humanitarian assistance in partnership with national and international NGOs and UN agencies. Since the intensification of the conflict in March 2015, the YHF has channelled 331 millions of dollars towards meeting critical life-saving needs, including through the provision of healthcare, clean water, sanitation services, food supplies or shelter materials.
The YHF aims to promote needs-based assistance in accordance with humanitarian principles, respond to the most urgent needs, strengthen the cluster coordination system and reinforce the leadership of the Humanitarian Coordinator. OCHA’s Country-Based Pool Funding (CBPFs) mechanism ensures that timely and flexible funding is available in Yemen to address the most immediate and critical needs while reinforcing coordinated and integrated humanitarian action. The allocation strategy is the result of a consultation process launched by the Humanitarian Coordinator, and involving Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) members, Clusters, sub-clusters, Area HCT and OCHA Hubs at Governorate level.
