According to the 2019 Humanitarian Needs Overview, nearly four years of conflict and severe economic decline are driving Yemen to the brink of famine and exacerbating needs in all sectors. An estimated 24.1 million people - approximately 80% of the population - 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.
