Yemen - State of Food Insecurity in Yemen based on the Emergency Food Security and Nutrition Assessment (EFSNA), April 2017
The conflict in Yemen has led to an alarming deterioration in the food security and nutrition situation leaving sixty percent of the population in food crisis or emergency.
One in three Yemeni households have poor food consumption reflecting a diet of extremely poor quality and quantity – mainly consisting of bread, sugar and oil.
The ongoing widespread conflict has had devastating impacts on people’s lives and overall well-being. In response, 62 percent of households are forced to adapt coping strategies, a 30 percent increase compared to 2014.
The household hunger score has nearly tripled since 2014. Over two-fifth of Yemeni households went to sleep hungry and almost one-fifth reported to have gone one day and night without eating.
