Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Overview: In December 2018, food insecurity in Yemen was at its worst. For the first time, nearly a quarter of a million people were estimated to be experiencing catastrophic food consumption gaps (IPC Phase 5) without Humanitarian Food Assistance (HFA). The severity was reported in 45 districts spread in 12 governorates out of the 22 governorates of Yemen. In the aftermath, all humanitarian partners – UN, INGOs, Governments and Donors – put together concerted efforts to scale up humanitarian assistance to the most vulnerable populations in the worst affected districts. The humanitarian assistance also included other sectors such as WASH, Protection, Nutrition, Health, shelter, etc. Although the TWG planned for continuous monitoring of these 45 districts, with the possibility of updat[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

According to the latest IPC analysis, from December 2018 to January 2019, a total of 15.9 million people, i.e. 53% of the population analysed are severely food insecure, despite ongoing humanitarian food assistance (HFA). This includes 17% of the population (about 5 million people) classified in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency) and 36% (about 10.8 million people) in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis). Of greatest concern are the additional 63,500 people in IPC Phase 5 (Catastrophe).  Additional analysis conducted by the Yemen IPC Technical Working Group (TWG) to estimate the severity and magnitude of food insecurity excluding the mitigating effects of the HFA delivered, shows that 20.1 million people (67% of the total population) would be in need of urgent action (IPC Phase 3 and above), including 238,000 peopl[...]

Dec 2018/ Jan 2019

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Food security in Yemen has deteriorated further since the last IPC analysis conducted in June 2016. An estimated 17 million people, which is equivalent to 60% of the total Yemeni population, are food insecure and require urgent humanitarian assistance to save lives and protect livelihoods. Among those, approximately 10.2 million people are in IPC Phase 3 ‘crisis’ and 6.8 million people are in IPC Phase 4 ‘emergency’. Nationally, the population under Emergency (IPC Phase 4) and Crisis (IPC Phase 3) has increased by 20% compared to the results of the June 2016 IPC analysis. Acute malnutrition is a major outcome of the severe food insecurity and is at alarming levels. Malnutrition has been a serious problem in Yemen for a long time, especially chronic malnutrition (stunting). However[...]

Mar 2017/ Jul 2017

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

About 51% of the population is suffering from food insecurity and malnutrition, in line with Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or Emergency (IPC Phase 4). The population under Emergency (IPC Phase 4) and Crisis (IPC Phase 3) has increased by 9.4% compared to the results of the June 2015 IPC analysis. Moreover, the conflict displaced more than 2.75 million since March 2015. Of concern is the Around Taiz governorate where 1,028,610 people (33% of the population) are under Emergency (IPC Phase 4) and 832,667 people (27% of the population) are under Crisis (IPC Phase 3). The food security and nutrition situation is under constant deterioration in many parts of Taiz due to the ongoing active conflict, restrictions, disruption of markets, scarcity and high price of food and absence of basic health, water and[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

NOTICE: Area Classification endorsed by the IPC Global Support Unit (GSU) as Indicative IPC Acute Phase Classification*. Population table represents the best estimate done by the Yemen IPC TWG and it is not endorsed as an IPC Outcome due to lack of sufficient and up to date outcome evidence. The ten (10) Governorates, Aden, AlDhale’e, Lahj, Taiz, Abyan, Sa’ada, Hajjah, Hodeida, Al Bayda, Shabwa are classified in Emergency food insecurity (IPC Phase 4). These governorates are currently among the worst affected by the conflict. Nine governorates are classified as facing a food security “Crisis” or IPC Phase 3: Amran, Dhamar, Sana’a, Sana’a, city, Ibb, Mareb, Rayma, Al Mahweet, Al Jawf. It is estimated that currently at least six million people are identified as being in [...]
