Context

After more than seven years of conflict, Yemen remained one of the most critical and complex humanitarian contexts in 2022.

Despite short-term ceasefires, fighting continued, resulting in renewed population displacements and more destruction. Over 4 million Yemenis have been displaced.

The continuing civil war has also brought economic hardship. The country has serious structural weaknesses and its basic services and infrastructure (water supplies, sanitation and health in particular) have been damaged by the fighting. The population is in an extremely vulnerable situation, and many communities are suffering from critical food insecurity. Yemen is also prone to natural disasters, such as flooding, and climate shocks. This heightens humanitarian needs, which are already extensive due to structural problems.

Our teams have stepped up their emergency response in Marib governorate. This region provides refuge for around two million people who were displaced by the conflict during 2022.

In areas affected by water scarcity, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL has expanded its programs to increase the capacity and resilience of communities and local authorities with regard to water, sanitation and hygiene management. A pilot project using innovative approaches has enabled a map of underground water sources to be produced, in collaboration with local authorities and communities. This map will soon enable water to be used more efficiently.
