In August 2023, 33.5 percent of the surveyed households in Yemen experienced food insecurity equivalent to Crisis and above (IPC Phase 3+)
Around 29 percent of the households experienced moderate or severe hunger; 36 percent reported moderate or poor dietary diversity, and nearly 43 percent consumed inadequate food (FCG poor or borderline) during August 2023.
Food insecurity slightly decreased in August 2023 compared to last three months. The likely reason for this improvement is the onset of the harvest season for some areas.
Seventy-four percent of the surveyed households resorted to severe livelihood coping strategies (crisis and emergency) during the reporting month, damaging the households’ future productivity and capacity to manage shocks. The trend does not show noticeable improvement in 2023. The proportion of households often resorting to food-based coping strategies marginally improved by about 3 percent in August 2023 compared to July 2023.
