After more than seven years of war and economic crisis, Yemen remains one of the world’s top humanitarian crises. More than two-thirds of the population need assistance, and nearly half relies on humanitarian aid to survive. The displacement and protection crisis continues to deteriorate as well – in early 2022, an estimated 4.3 million people remained internally displaced by the conflict and disasters, with 1.6 million having settled in 2,358 spontaneous, unplanned sites. Yemen might be perceived as a protracted crisis, but it’s far from stable as millions of Yemenis continue to suffer daily from the effects of the conflict and climate change, as well as from the most recent escalating hostilities.

Key messages:

  1. The humanitarian crisis in Yemen remains drastically underfunded and people are as a result being left
    without access to life-saving support.
  2. Housing, Land and Property (HLP) disputes lead to eviction threats, impede the provision of humanitarian
    Shelter and CCCM assistance and exacerbate protection risks of displaced people.
  3. After seven years of conflict, the protracted nature of the crisis, coupled with funding shortages, imply a
    focus on emergency life-saving support, but there is an urgent need to find more durable solutions for the
    internally displaced in Yemen.
