OVER 21 MILLION PEOPLE ESTIMATED TO NEED HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE IN 2023
In March 2023, Yemen enters its ninth year since the escalation of the conflict in 2015. The impacts of the prolonged conflict, compounded by the ongoing macroeconomic crisis, high levels of food insecurity, recurring natural disasters, such as droughts and floods, and lack of access to basic services, have continued to drive humanitarian needs in Yemen.
The 2023 Humanitarian Needs Overview shows that some 21.6 million people will need humanitarian assistance next year, including some 13.4 million in acute need. Compared to 2022, when some 23.4 million people were identified with humanitarian needs, this is a 1.8 million decrease. A marginal improvement in the food security outlook in the last quarter of 2022, with 17 million people with acute food needs, compared to 19 million estimated in the second half of 2022, and the lowered severity of living conditions of people across different sectors contribute to a decrease in people in need .
