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

Most recently I spoke to the UN’s Resident Coordinator/Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, Lise Grande, on 14 June. We are also in regular contact with the World Food Programme (WFP) which delivers the majority of food aid into the country at Ministerial level with WFP’s Executive Director David Beasley.</p><p> </p><p>The UN estimates that 17.8 million people in Yemen do not have reliable access to food and 8.4 million people face extreme food shortages. Our funding of £170 million to Yemen this financial year 2018/2019 includes support to meet the immediate food needs for 2.5 million Yemenis, and brings the total UK bilateral support to Yemen to over £570 million since 2015.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Intense fighting on the ground is making it increasingly hard for UNHCR and other non-governmental organisations to reach those in need within Yemen. This is compounded by restrictions on imports of commercial and humanitarian supplies into the country, including fuel. This in turn is hampering the distribution of humanitarian supplies within country, including essential food and medicines.Of the 2.3 million internally displaced people in Yemen, to date UNHCR has provided emergency relief items to 147,386 of them since the end of March.</p><br /><p>The UK continues to call on all parties to facilitate rapid, safe and unhindered access to all people in need in Yemen. The UK is one of the largest donors to the crisis and has announced £75m to respond to the crisis in Yemen. UK aid is providing vital medical supplies, water, food and emergency shelter, working with trusted and impartial actors who have a strong track record in delivering assistance in difficult and dangerous places. We also support a UN-led process on access negotiations and the establishment of the Access Working Group where partners report cases of obstruction and accessible routes.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The current conflict has affected every man, woman, and child in Yemen. As always, however, it has had a disproportionate impact on women and girls. The incidence of violence against women is rising rapidly, including: sexual violence; domestic violence; forced early marriages; denial of resources; and psychological and emotional abuse. Furthermore, the UN estimates that more than 1 million pregnant women or nursing mothers are acutely malnourished.</p><p>Our support to UNHCR provides cash assistance for vulnerable displaced women and female headed households to access protection services, including support for women and girls to prevent and respond to sexual violence, legal assistance and counselling. The UK’s funding to UNICEF provides nutritional support to pregnant women and nursing mothers. The UK is also actively advocating for the inclusion of women in peace talks and encouraging political actors to take women’s views into account.</p> more like this
