The humanitarian crisis in Yemen continues to worsen; characterized by increasing needs – including hunger and COVID-19 – escalating conflict, and a collapsing economy. UNFPA’s appeal for $100.5 million in 2020 received only 53 per cent by the end of July. If this funding trajectory continues, UNFPA will be forced to suspend operations further, including operations of the rapid response mechanism by August and women’s protection programme by October 2020. To keep reaching the most vulnerable women and girls up to the end of the year, UNFPA requires $47.1 million with an additional $20 million to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
