UNFPA Response in Yemen Monthly Situation Report #06 – July 2016

Publication Date: July 2016
Author: UNFPA Yemen


By July 2016, 4 million people were reached, out of the 13.6 million people being targeted for humanitarian assistance in 2016. The needs, however, are becoming more acute, particularly among the 2.8 million men, women and children who have been displaced in search of safety, security and livelihoods. The situation is particularly worse in Taizz Governorate, where heavy fighting continues. The UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen, Jamie McGoldrick called on all parties to agree immediately to a humanitarian pause in Taizz in order to protect civilians, facilitate the treatment and evacuation of the war wounded and the delivery of urgently needed medicine and other life-saving assistance. Low levels of funding continue to hamper the humanitarian response with the Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan being funded currently at 26 per cent.

The UN-backed peace talks that started in April 2016 in Kuwait came to a stop without a concrete agreement being reached. The peace talks are to continue, with more bilateral discussions among parties to the conflict, to crystalize the finer details for an agreement before resuming for talks.
