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.


Information Management Support to Yemen
The iMMAP team in Yemen evaluates the currently available data through assessing data collection methods and information products for planning and decision making for 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 recommendation and IM best practices.
Rapid City and Neighborhood Profiling for Sana’a and Aden
The objective of this project is the development of two city profiles for the selected cities of Aden and Sana’a. The city profiles will be accompanied by the development of an Urban Analytical Framework and will contribute to strengthening the resilience of affected populations to cope with the impacts of the conflict. This includes support to operational agencies/actors and coordination mechanisms on how to analyze the particularities of the urban areas and better address them in their planning and responses. This contribution is presented through our expertise in urban analysis, information management tools, and by collaborative and inclusive approaches with key stakeholders.
