The results of the 2014 Comprehensive Food Security Survey (CFSS) showed that some 41 percent of the population in Yemen are food-insecure. In other words, 10.6 million people in the country had limited or no access to sufficient, nutritious food, and were eating less than the minimum required to live a healthy life. About 19 percent of the population are severely food insecure (poor diet) and 22 percent are moderately food insecure (just on borderline level of food consumption). Around 48 percent of the total rural population were found to be food insecure, compared to 26 percent in urban areas.
