Yemen: Food supply chain
Created: 16/12/2020 +

Overview

Yemen’s food supply chain has continued to function through five years of conflict, in large part because food importers on all sides have adopted dynamic operational methods in a complex and politicised environment. This has come at a cost, however. Food prices doubled between 2015 and 2019, and continue to rise. The number of employed Yemenis has halved over the same period. According to international experts, food security in Yemen continue to deteriorate and two-thirds of Yemenis are in need of food and livelihood support. Without sustained and informed external support, the gap between the cost of food and what Yemenis can afford will steadily grow.
