Prolonged conflict is causing food insecurity to increase across Yemen. Besides reduced import levels of food and fuel, diminishing purchasing power is further putting lives at risk as those who most need food are unable to buy what they require for themselves and their families. The conflict has displaced people to areas where food insecurity is the highest and the lack of food has turned into their number one concern. Increased conflict will only make matters worse.
