Four Famines: Fragility, Resilience, and the Role of International Development
Description: More than 20 million people in Yemen, Somalia, South Sudan, and Nigeria are facing famine conditions and possible starvation. It has been called the largest humanitarian crisis the world has seen in decades. Of the $4.9 billion the United Nations desperately needs to respond to these crises, only $2.5 billion has been received. Meanwhile, the humanitarian disaster is deepening, largely due to escalating conflict in each of the four countries. Humanitarian assistance and international development have different objectives and time horizons, but must work together to respond to the crisis at hand while also preventing the next one from occurring. What role does international development play in building long-term resilience? What are the linkages between conflict, fragility, and severe food insecurity? How can U.S. leadership and international development programming break the cycle of instability and famine?

Doctors and Nurses in Yemen Struggle to Survive
Description: Staff at Al Kuwait University Hospital in Sana'a are among the tens of thousands of public health employees in Yemen who face the daily risks and challenges of working a country devastated by conflict—and who have been struggling to survive on little to no pay over the past year. Many health workers cannot afford to keep going, and many health facilities have had to shut down. Those medical staff who continue to work without pay are helping their communities out of a sense of duty, and holding out hope for change.

Yemen: Blocking Aid, Fuel Endangers Civilians
Description: The Saudi-led coalition’s restrictions on imports to Yemen have worsened the dire humanitarian situation of Yemeni civilians, Human Rights Watch said today. The restrictions, in violation of international humanitarian law, have delayed and diverted fuel tankers, closed a critical port, and stopped life-saving goods for the population from entering seaports controlled by opposing Houthi-Saleh forces. Houthi-Saleh forces, who control the capital, Sanaa, and much of the country, have also violated international legal obligations to facilitate humanitarian aid to civilians and significantly harmed the civilian population. They have blocked and confiscated aid, denied access to populations in need, and restricted the movement of ill civilians and aid workers.
