According to the 2020 Humanitarian Response Plan, after five 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 24.3 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.
