star this property answer text <p>We are concerned about reports of intensified fighting in the governorate of Al Dhale’e. The UN estimates that 35,000 people have been displaced since the fighting escalated, with the area becoming increasingly challenging for humanitarian actors, who are struggling to gain access.</p><p> </p><p>Humanitarian agencies, including the World Food Programme, continue to operate across Al Dhale’e under extremely difficult circumstances in order to provide vital assistance such as food, healthcare and clean water.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is clear that there can be no military solution to this conflict. A political settlement is the only way to provide long term stability to Yemen and address the worsening humanitarian crisis; we encourage further constructive engagement from both parties to achieve this.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are acutely aware of the risks of delivering life-saving assistance in the midst of Yemen’s conflict. DFID has a zero-tolerance policy to the diversion of UK aid funds and seeks to minimise the risks to ensure life-saving assistance reaches those who need it most.</p><p>We do this by only channelling support through organisations with a strong record of delivering and monitoring assistance, such as UN agencies and international NGOs. All of DFID’s partners and programmes are also subject to rigorous and regular due diligence to ensure that UK aid goes directly to those who need it most. Moreover, we fund an independent monitoring programme that provides third-party verification of results that partners have reported to back to DFID.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>On Friday 21 December 2018, the UN Security Council voted unanimously to adopt Security Council Resolution 2451, a UK-led resolution to bolster the UN Yemen peace process and address the humanitarian situation in Yemen. Later on 16 January 2019, UN Security Council Resolution 2452 was unanimously agreed. It was drafted by the UK and establishes a six month UN mission to monitor and support implementation of the Hodeidah ceasefire and redeployment of forces. We encourage both parties to proactively follow through on their obligations under these Security Council Resolutions and will continue to use our role as penholder to support the UN-led political process.</p> more like this

Since 2017 we have supported 1,700 survivors of gender-based violence across Yemen as part of our £13 million funding to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and International Office for Migration, and as part of the UK’s more than £75 million in funding to UNICEF over the next three years, we expect to support 240,000 women each year with reproductive health services, including support during childbirth.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is also providing £39 million from 2015 to 2020 to a UNICEF/UNFPA Global Programme taking action against Child Marriage in twelve priority countries, including Yemen. The programme has reached nearly 6,000 Yemen girls, providing important services such as psychosocial support.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The effective functioning of Aden port is highly important in allowing increased levels of humanitarian supplies entry into Yemen through this port. However, Aden port lacks the necessary berthing, storage, and milling capacity required to maintain the food supply chain to the rest of Yemen. Due to Aden’s location, it would also take several days to transport supplies by road, across multiple conflict frontlines, to reach those who are most in need in northern governorates.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Red Sea ports of Hodeidah and Saleef have an irreplaceable role in preventing a further decline in the humanitarian crisis. These ports act as the entry point for the majority of humanitarian and commercial supplies to people in need in northern governorates.</p> more like this

On 26 February, a UN mission reached the Red Sea Mills facility outside Hodeidah city for the first time in nearly six months, paving the way to releasing enough wheat to feed up to 3.5 million people for a month. Hodeidah port remains open and the food pipeline into Red Sea ports is strong. In February 2019, Yemen imported 114% of its monthly pre-conflict food import requirements.</p><p> </p><p>It is imperative that the parties implement the Stockholm agreements, which will secure access into Hodeidah port and vital onward supply routes. There can be no return to major military operations in Hodeidah: this would be catastrophic for Yemen and potentially push millions into famine.</p> more like this
