The level of need in Yemen is staggering. Nearly 80 per cent of the population requires humanitarian assistance and protection. Close to half of all families are in acute need. As many as 4.3 million civilians have been displaced, including 375,000 during 2019. Conditions are worst in conflict-affected areas, including in the sub-districts where humanitarian access remains restricted.

Two-thirds of the population, more than 20 million people, are hungry, and 36 percent of the population is malnourished. Economic decline, restrictions on imports, shortages of foreign exchange and liquidity, and fluctuations in the value of the currency continue to put millions of people at risk of famine.
