Japan boosts FAO’s efforts to reduce acute food insecurity of conflict and Covid-19 affected population in Yemen

10/02/2021

The Government of Japan contributed USD 2 090 909 to FAO to conduct emergency interventions in Yemen as part of its ongoing response in the country.

Through the “Emergency agricultural livelihood assistance to conflict and COVID-19 affected populations” project, FAO is providing emergency livelihoods assistance to over 10 650 households (74 550 people) of the most vulnerable households in Yemen’s Al Bayda and Al Dhale’e Governorates. According to the latest Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) analysis released by FAO and partners, over 50 percent of the population in the two governorates are facing severe acute food insecurity (IPC 3 and above) and are at-risk to fall into famine-like conditions if humanitarian and livelihood support is not provided.
