Since March 2015, Yemen has experienced a conflict which has included air strikes, ground fighting, and indiscriminate attacks that have displaced over 3 million people. The impact of conflict and displacement is far-reaching and most critically, the Yemeni people are facing food insecurity and malnutrition at crisis levels that threaten to worsen without significant intervention and assistance from humanitarian actors and the international community. Half of Yemen’s population is currently suffering from food insecurity and malnutrition, with the population under these conditions continuing to increase.

The project goal is to Provide life-saving interventions in Yemen to address the dire health and nutrition conditions faced by the population and alleviate the underlying food security issues by restoring livelihoods and agriculture cultivation. The needs in the country exceed what the humanitarian community can provide, so programming must also work to restore local agriculture production and lost livelihoods that can help displaced households integrate back into their communities and foster broader recovery and rehabilitation efforts. These activities build directly on previous activities in these Sectors and Sub-sectors that will be funded by OFDA and will be aligned with and complemented with ADRA’s new food voucher program funded by USAID/FFP.
