Yemen Emergency Livelihoods Response Plan 2018

The Emergency Livelihoods Response Plan (ELRP) 2018 guides FAO’s response in Yemen to prevent the levels of food insecurity and malnutrition from worsening. It sets out key emergency agricultural livelihood interventions to be implemented within the framework of the 2018 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan. The overall goal is to improve food security and nutrition, alleviate rural poverty and enhance Yemen’s capacity to manage and respond to risks and threats in the agriculture sector through a resilience-based approach. In this regard, the plan reflects FAO’s strategic objective to strengthen livelihoods by helping countries to prepare for, manage and respond to threats and crises.

The ELRP was prepared after an extensive analysis of the drivers of food insecurity and malnutrition in Yemen, a thorough review of assessment reports, and discussions with FAO technical staff and local stakeholders. Implementing the ELRP will require USD 57.1 million to support approximately 820 000 households (5.7 million people) – over a 12-month period – in the 16 governorates with the highest levels of food insecurity and malnutrition.
