IOM IN YOUR COUNTRY

Overview

Yemen, in its seventh year of conflict, continues to face the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. Needs remain high, driven by the escalating conflict, disease, a declining economy, and the breakdown of public institutions and services. Millions are projected to experience alarming levels of acute malnutrition and food insecurity in 2021, with an estimated 80 per cent of population to remain in need of humanitarian assistance. Over 170,000 people were displaced in 2020 alone, with the opening of over a dozen new frontlines and the escalation of hostilities in governorates like Ma’rib. Without a peaceful resolution of the conflict, the severity of needs and suffering is expected to worsen across the country. At the same time, despite the current crisis, migrants continue to arrive irregularly in Yemen, with most hoping to find work in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
