    In Yemen, some 17 million people are still food insecure while a staggering seven million people do not know where their next meal is coming from and are at risk of famine. Acute food insecurity is expected to deteriorate further if no immediate funding and scale up of emergency food and livelihood assistance programs. A delay in the start of the rainy season compounded by insufficient rain was considerably less compared with last year and even less so than the long-term average. The conflict ha s further escalated the situation Taiz and Al Hudaydah – the most food insecure and famine risk governorates – putting livelihoods and humanitarian access at risk. Yemen’s food security prospect is heavily dependent on factors affecting imports, transportation and distribution across the country.

    In Yemen, an estimated 17 million people – equivalent to 60 percent of the total population – are food insecure and require urgent humanitarian assistance to save lives and protect livelihoods. Food security in Yemen has deteriorated further since the last IPC analysis conducted in June 2016. Among those, approximately 10.2 million people are in a state of ‘crisis’ (IPC Phase 3) and 6.8 million people are living under ‘emergency’ levels (IPC Phase 4). Nationally, the population under Emergency ( IPC Phase 4) and Crisis (IPC Phase 3) has increased by 20 percent compared to the results of June 2016..

    A concerted and massive humanitarian response is containing famine in Unity State, with the number of people in famine conditions in the county down from a projected 90 000 to 25 000. However, hunger continues to spread across the country with 6 million people now severely food insecure. Of these, 1.7 million people – increased from 1 million in February – are at risk of famine (IPC Phase 4). In addition, 20 000 people in Ayod County of Greater Jonglei, where food security is deteriorating rapid ly, are facing famine conditions. Armed conflict, a continued economic crisis and below-average 2016 harvests, which were exhausted well before the ongoing lean season, are the main drivers of the worsening food security. In Greater Equatoria, and particularly some of South Sudan’s most productive areas, fighting has severely disrupted agricultural activities and markets, forcing huge numbers of the population to flee to Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and causing many to miss th e 2017 main planting season. Acute malnutrition remains a major emergency in many parts of the country, driven by conflict, displacement, poor access to services, disease outbreaks, extremely poor diet (quality and quantity) and low coverage of sanitation facilities.
