star this property answer text <p>The UK is working with the Government of Yemen, Gulf partners, the UN, international financial institutions, and other donors on planning for Yemen’s post-conflict recovery. This includes emphasising the importance of providing security, stabilising the economy, and delivering basic services. We will continue to work closely with all parties to support Yemen’s recovery following any political settlement.</p><p> </p><p>We are also continuing our work to protect key institutions that will be critical to Yemen’s future development. Between 2010 and 2018, for example, DFID contributed £108 million to the Yemen Social Fund for Development, providing hundreds of thousands of Yemenis with work opportunities restoring roads, health clinics, and agricultural land, as well as providing training, infrastructure improvements, and clean water to thousands more.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The international humanitarian response relies on national NGOs for aid delivery. This is the only way to reach the millions of Yemenis in need, including those in remote or difficult to reach areas. For example, over 50% of the delivery partners of the Yemen Humanitarian Pooled Fund (YHPF) are national NGOs. The YHFP is a key funding mechanism that provides rapid support to NGOs and UN agencies to meet priority humanitarian needs in Yemen.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Yemen’s recent economic crisis is one of the biggest risks threatening to tip Yemen into famine, with the Yemeni Riyal losing over 40% of its value between June and October.</p><p>The UK’s immediate leadership at the height of the economic crisis in October prevented a worsening of the situation. We worked with the Central Bank of Yemen in releasing $270 million of hard currency, provided by Saudi Arabia, to support importers bringing food staples into the country.</p><p>We also successfully pressed for the suspension of unnecessary processes introduced by the Government of Yemen in bringing these goods into the country. This has eased the pressure of price increases and temporarily stabilised the currency - the value of the Riyal has since appreciated, rising from 755 YER per USD to 500 YER per USD.</p><p>However, much more remains to be done. The UK is now working with the Government of Yemen to facilitate greater financial transparency, ensure foreign currency is available to commercial importers and rebuild key financial institutions.</p>

Furthermore, in July this year DFID flew in 3,000 tents as well as thousands more blankets, solar lanterns, and kitchen sets into Aden to help with emergency needs in Hodeidah governorate.</p>
