Adapting to complex emergencies - Yemen

A major trend of current protracted crises is the underlying vulnerability of a country, driven by under-development and a lack of basic services, rule of law and State authority. Yemen is an example of such a crisis. Major political upheaval began in 2011 following the Arab revolutions, but Yemen had been receiving CERF funding since 2007. More than half of the country’s population is in need, and the resumption of normal livelihoods is undermined by the collapse of basic services. In such a difficult scenario-where access is restricted, aid workers operate in volatile conditions and resources are scarce—the international humanitarian community has moved to adapt to continue serving affected people the best way it can. Since 2010, when an OCHA presence was established in Yemen, the number of organizations participating in the response plan has quadrupled from 25 in 2010 to more than 100 in 2014, potentially increasing the reach and scope of projects helping Yemeni people.
