Conflict in the north continues to contribute to food insecurity

Key Messages

Security has relatively improved in Amran Governorate of North Yemen with no active conflict since 22 March. However, most of the displaced population has not returned to the governorate for fear of further violence. The displacement continues to affect their food security as they are not able to undertake their normal livelihoods activities.

The first-season, March-to-June rains were below average in the month of March in the western crop-producing parts of Yemen, leading to drier-than-normal vegetation conditions.

The updated seasonal forecast by the European Center for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) suggests higher-than-average land surface temperatures with little or no rainfall forecast for the next 2-3 months for the entire country.
