People are increasingly exhausting their coping mechanisms, and as a result the humanitarian crisis remains extremely widespread: an estimated 22.2 million people in Yemen need some kind of humanitarian or protection assistance, including 11.3 million who are in acute need – an increase of one million people in acute need since November 2016.

Over 11 million Yemeni children are in need of humanitarian assistance as a result of the devastating conflict that has ravaged the country since March 2015. Facing the largest food security crisis in the world and an unprecedented cholera outbreak, deprived of access to basic WASH, health and nutrition services, children are unable to fulfil their potential. Every 10 minutes, at least one child dies of preventable causes like malnutrition, diarrhea, and respiratory tract infections.

Availability of essential food commodities improved in many governorates in August. However, the contraction of the overall economy and price increases of basic commodities have resulted in a reduction of the purchasing power of Yemeni households. Fuel imports are still below half the level of the country’s needs. As access to clean water in Yemen mostly depends on fuel-powered pumps, fuel shortages are a contributing factor to the humanitarian crisis.

Low access constraints: No or very few access constraints. Armed groups, checkpoints, air strikes or other impediments may be present, but these rarely result in travel restrictions. Humanitarian organisations can operate, and with adequate resources could reach all or nearly all targeted people in need.

Medium access constraints: Armed groups, checkpoints, air strikes, and other impediments are present and often result in restrictions on humanitarian movements and operations. Operations continue in these areas with regular restrictions.
