    Yemen - Plan of Action 2018–2020
    Strengthening resilient agricultural livelihoods

    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.

    Systèmes d’information sur la sécurité alimentaire et la nutrition pour renforcer la résilience des ménages ruraux au Yémen
    Renforcement de la sécurité alimentaire et de l’analyse de la malnutrition aiguë pour une prise de décision éclairée
    2021
    Also available in:

    Après plus de cinq ans de conflit prolongé, le Yémen est toujours confronté à une crise humanitaire, sociale et économique sans précédent. Le conflit, les déplacements de population et le déclin économique exercent une pression immense sur les services de base essentiels et les institutions qui les fournissent. Suite à l’escalade du conflit en 2015, les besoins humanitaires ont fortement augmenté dans tous les secteurs ce qui a exacerbé les vulnérabilités préexistantes, mis à mal la résilience des communautés et hâté l’effondrement des institutions publiques. En raison de la nécessité de disposer d’informations fiables et d’actualité sur la sécurité alimentaire et la nutrition pour éclairer la prise de décision au niveau national et des gouvernorats, l’Organisation des Nations Unies pour l’alimentation et l’agriculture (FAO) et le Gouvernement yéménite ont mis en oeuvre, avec le soutien de l’Union européenne, une approche globale du système d’information avec deux phases initiales entre 2013 et 2020. La présente fiche documente la pratique prometteuse correspondant à la troisième phase de ce programme intitulé “Renforcement du système d’information et d’alerte rapide sur la sécurité alimentaire et la nutrition” (2019-2021). Le programme s’attaque aux principaux défis associés aux systèmes de collecte, d’analyse et de gestion des informations sur la sécurité alimentaire et la nutrition dans le pays en soutenant la mise en place d’un Secrétariat technique pour la sécurité alimentaire (FSTS) durable et d’Unités focales en charge de la sécurité alimentaire et de la nutrition à l’échelon des gouvernorats (UFG).

    FAO’s response in Yemen
    Briefing note
    2018
    Also available in:

    Yemen is facing the world’s largest food security crisis. Ongoing conflict, now entering its fourth year, 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 displacement and high rates of malnutrition. The agriculture sector is among the worst hit by the current crisis and local food production has been severely compromised. The absence of veterinary services, coupled with scarcity and the high cost of drugs and animal feed has contributed to poor production. The country’s low food self-sufficiency has been worsened by the conflict, which has disrupted economic activities, led to the suspension of safety net programmes and the implementation of import restrictions. Agriculture must be an integral part of the humanitarian response to prevent Yemen’s dire food security situation from worsening. FAO’s programmes in Yemen aim to save livelihoods through the provision of supplies, knowledge and training to support the most vulnerable Yemeni communities to enhance their resilience and improve their food security and nutrition. To achieve lasting impact on food security and nutrition and to restore and strengthen the agricultural livelihoods of vulnerable families, FAO has developed two plans to guide its response over the next three years.
