Emergency Food and Nutritional Support to Conflict-affected Populations in Yemen

The Republic of Yemen is in an increasingly complex humanitarian crisis, with conflict in the north, secessionist movements in the south and Al Qaeda and other Salafist-led movements in various parts of the country. In addition, in 2011 there were very high levels of civil unrest, inspired by the “Arab Spring” revolutions in the region. The lack of strong central governance as well as the direct impact of conflict has exacerbated Yemen’s already severe poverty and malnutrition: 32 percent of the population are suffering food insecurity.
