    Yemen is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis where the population faces constant threats to their lives and livelihoods. The ongoing conflict has led to a severe economic decline and collapsed essential services, taking an enormous toll on the population and exacerbating existing vulnerabilities. The expansion of the conflict has also led to large-scale displacements and high rates of malnutrition. In response, FAO developed the Yemen Emergency Livelihoods Response Plan 2019. The overall objective of the plan is to reduce acute food insecurity and save the lives of the most vulnerable households through improved availability and access to food, economic empowerment, livelihoods restoration, agricultural infrastructure improvement, capacity development and effective coordination of interventions. Implementing the ELRP will require USD 135 million to support 990 900 households (7 million people) over a 12-month period in the districts with high levels of food insecurity.

    Yemen is experiencing the world's worst humanitarian crisis. As the crisis enters its fifth year, conflict, severe economic decline and collapsing essential services have taken an enormous toll on the population, exacerbating existing vulnerabilities. The United Nations (UN) has declared the last three years of the crisis as a system-wide ‘Level 3’ humanitarian emergency. Level 3 responses are activated in the most complex and challenging humanitarian emergencies, when the highest level of mobilization is required across the humanitarian system. Even before the conflict escalated, the country suffered high levels of poverty, food insecurity, undernutrition and malnutrition, water shortages and land degradation. Yemenis are also facing armed conflict, displacement, risk of famine and disease outbreaks. Since 2015, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations’ (FAO’s) support in Yemen has included key agricultural inputs, cash-based transfers and training, which has contributed to more than 2 million resource-poor households improving their food security and nutrition and strengthened their ability to cope with crises. In addition to short-term activities under UN-led humanitarian response plans, longer-term interventions are required to achieve lasting, sustainable improvements in food security and nutrition. FAO’s Plan of Action 2018–2020 serves as a strategic planning tool to guide FAO operations in Yemen through food security, nutrition and agricultural livelihoods programmes and projects. This document will also inform planning and programming for emergency and recovery support to Yemen’s agriculture sector. The overall goal of the three-year Plan of Action is to make a significant contribution towards improving food security and nutrition and strengthening the resilience of vulnerable rural and peri-urban households while restoring the agriculture sector of the country. As a dynamic document, the Plan of Action will be implemented through a flexible twintrack approach that can be tailored to its target areas for different types of intervention based on the conflict dynamics and changing circumstances in the country over the next three years. Strategic decisions on targeting will be informed by conflict analysis and regular conflict monitoring that ensures conflict-sensitive interventions.
