Première Urgence Internationale


Since 2011 and the Yemeni revolution, Yemen is facing major challenges and is unable to control the whole country. The transition process has failed to provide a sustainable peace in the region. The Houthis have taken advantage of certain weaknesses of the State and have taken control of important areas in the north of the country. They also take over the administration and tax collection. AQAP (Al Qaeda in Arabic Peninsula), meanwhile, took control of several cities in the governorates of Abya, Shabwah and Hadramawi in the south and west of the country. ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) also took a position in the south, in the governorate of Abyan. In March 2015, a Saudi-led coalition began air strikes to support pro-government forces and try to prevent the Houthis from seizing Aden.

The armed conflict has spread rapidly throughout much of Yemen since mid-March 2015, with devastating consequences for civilians. More than a year of violence has led one of the world’s poorest countries into chaos. Around 70% of the population, or 18.8 million people, now depend on humanitarian aid; 2.8 million are displaced; Dozens of schools and hospitals were the target of attacks; 14 million Yemenis are food insecure and 3 million children and pregnant or lactating women are acutely malnourished. The lack of access to safe drinking water and sanitation also affects 14.4 million people. 14.8 million people have no access to health care. A generation of Yemeni children is at risk, as nearly 2 million children do not have access to education because of conflict, poverty and discrimination. The conflict also creates serious risks to the security and psychosocial well-being of the civilian population, the first victim of violence in Yemen. Millions of people are directly affected by the conflict, and OCHA estimates that 11.3 million people are in need of protection.

The conflict has exacerbated a pre-existing crisis in Yemen. Many years of poverty and underdevelopment, the weakness of the state and the absence of the rule of law, allowing violations of human rights and other abuses have affected the Yemeni population. In addition, the conflict has reversed some progress made in recent years.

The humanitarian crisis in Yemen is thus fueled today by conflict and widespread insecurity, large-scale population displacement, political instability, chronic food shortages, a collapse in social services and endemic poverty. The crisis has complex origins and varies in intensity across the country. Some needs are related to conflict, but others are due to underdevelopment and lack of investment in basic social infrastructure and services, poor governance, widespread poverty and Income for the populations.

Yemen still has one of the highest rates of severe chronic malnutrition among children. Indeed, a few months ago, available data showed that more than 850,000 children under the age of five were suffering from acute malnutrition. In addition, around 462,000 children under 5 are suffering from severe acute malnutrition. This represents a 63 per cent increase since late 2015 and threatens the lives and life-long prospects of those affected.

The State is facing major challenges and is unable to control the whole country. The transitional process failed to provide sustainable peace in the region. The Houthis took advantage of state weakness and gained control of the capital Sana’a and over large areas of the north. Taking over local administration and collecting taxes. In March 2015, a Saudi-led coalition began airstrikes in support of pro-government forces, to prevent the Houthis to take over Aden.
