According to the 2018 Humanitarian Needs Overview, the ongoing conflict in Yemen has led to a widespread humanitarian crisis, with mounting concerns over the protection of civilians, basic survival, economic collapse and the loss of livelihoods. An estimated 22.2 million people are in need of protection or humanitarian assistance.
Since 2011, iMMAP has been supporting actors responding to the crisis in Yemen. Currently, iMMAP provides information management and coordination assistance to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), cluster/sector leads, NGOs, and United Nations agencies. iMMAP’s support includes building the information management capacity of humanitarian actors, the provisions of short-term secondments, standardization of information management tools and processes and the development of a web-based reporting platform for de-confliction processes.
