Find out how the UK will respond to opportunities and challenges, what is being achieved for the UK and who we are working with.

The conflict and associated political, economic and humanitarian crises have deepened already severe poverty and gender inequality. Yemen is now one of the most serious humanitarian crises in the world and one of the 4 countries in which there is a credible risk of famine in 2017. The UN estimates that 21 million people, almost 80% of the population, are in need of assistance to meet their basic needs. This includes 10 million people, almost 40% of the population, who are in acute need and may not survive if they do not receive humanitarian assistance.
