Yemen: Risk Overview
Created: 02/04/2020 +


The Yemen Risk Overview is a risk identification report published every six months outlining the main emerging risks in Yemen that might affect the current humanitarian situation (6-month forecast). It aims to inform the humanitarian community of possible changes in context and humanitarian needs in Yemen, in order to facilitate contingency planning, risk management, and response. ACAPS regularly tracks these and other risks for Yemen and will publish monthly updates and one-off alerts as things change.

These risks were identified through joint analysis and key informant interviews with 31 experts from 14 humanitarian, economic, anthropology, development and conflict analysis organisations working on Yemen in March 2020, using the chain of plausibility approach. 

ACAPS also published regular scenarios to help map out how the humanitarian situation in Yemen could change, for better or for worse. See ACAPS Yemen scenarios here.
