The signing of the political agreement in November 2011 signalled the beginning of a new period in Yemen‘s history, but it has not led to improvements in the humanitarian situation.

    Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the world, ranked 133rd out of 182 countries on the UNDP Human Development Index. The adult illiteracy rate is 46%, with vast gender disparities: illiteracy among female adults is 65% compared to 27% for men.

1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Floods and heavy rains that affected eastern Yemen, particularly Wadi Hadramout valley and the coastal areas, from 24 to 25 October 2008 resulted in one of the most serious natural disasters in Yemen in the last decades. Flash floods and surging waters killed at least 73 persons and forced an additional 20,000 to 25,000 people into displacement. At least 3,264 predominantly mud-brick houses have been totally destroyed or damaged beyond repair, while hundreds of others are uninhabitable.
