According to the 2022 Humanitarian Response Plan, after six years of conflict, the humanitarian crisis in Yemen remains the worst in the world, driven by strife, disease, economic collapse and the breakdown of public institutions and services. Millions of people are hungry, destitute and acutely vulnerable. An estimated 23.4 million people are in need of protection or humanitarian assistance.

Since 2011, iMMAP Inc. has been supporting actors responding to the crisis in Yemen. Currently, iMMAP Inc. provides information management assistance to the United Nations, cluster/sector leads and NGOs. iMMAP Inc.’s support includes the provisions of short-term secondments, standardization of information management tools, and digital transformation of complex operational mechanisms.


Information Management Support to Yemen
The iMMAP Inc. team in Yemen evaluates the currently available data through assessing data collection methods and information products for planning and decision-making for the Integrated Famine Risk Reduction (IFRR) approach. This helps to improve coordination, identify gaps and needs, structure the current data flow, and eventually design a robust system ready to be used in all emergency phases in line with the IFRR recommendations and IM best practices.
Support to the Humanitarian Program Cycle (HPC)
HPC is a coordinated series of five actions undertaken to help strengthen a humanitarian response: needs and assessment analysis, strategic planning, resource mobilization, implementation and monitoring, and operational peer review and evaluation.

iMMAP continuously develops the HPC platform to optimize the visualization of needs, humanitarian cluster planning, response monitoring, among other activities. The platform presents key information such as overall needs and cluster information.
