• Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO)

    People In Need
    Acute People In Need
    Moderate People In Need

    More than two and a half years since the escalation of the conflict, Yemeni people continue to bear the brunt of ongoing hostilities and severe economic decline. People are increasingly exhausting their coping mechanisms, and as a result the humanitarian crisis remains extremely widespread: an estimated 22.2 million people in Yemen need some kind of humanitarian or protection assistance, including 11.3 million who are in acute need – an increase of more than one million people in acute need since June 2017. The escalation of the conflict since March 2015 has dramatically aggravated the protection crisis in which millions face risks to their safety and basic rights.

  • Faced with 22.2 million people in need of assistance, humanitarian partners aim to reach 13.1 million people in Yemen with life-saving or protection assistance in 2018. Populations and geographical areas in acute need where access and operational capacity permits are prioritized, and the YHRP further includes targets in areas where the populations in moderate need are at risk of slipping into acute need. Partners will be working with and through public institutions providing essential basic services to prevent their collapse. To achieve the targets laid out in this plan, partners require USD 2,96 billion.
