Nearly 20.7 million people in Yemen can’t afford to meet their basic needs. However, they continue to face the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, with more than half the population facing acute levels of food insecurity. Yemen depends on imports of almost all its food and essential commodities, and the collapse of its currency has led to skyrocketing food and other commodity prices and reduced households’ purchasing power.

The conflict intensified in 2021 with 49 districts in Yemen directly affected by active front lines, up from 35 at the start of 2020. Over 4 million people are internally displaced due to the conflict. The Covid-19 pandemic worsened the humanitarian crisis. Civilians across the country suffered from worsening economic conditions and a lack of basic services. (Source: Human Rights Watch).
