“Huge jump” in food insecurity across Yemen: FAO
There’s been a “huge jump” in food insecurity across Yemen, with three million more in need compared with seven months ago, said the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) on Friday.
Salah El Hajj Hassan, FAO Representative in Yemen, said that given agriculture was the main source of livelihood for most of the country, the spike in malnutrition was “extremely worrying.”
Since the conflict between Houthi rebels and Saudi-backed government forces escalated in 2015, two-thirds of Yemenis now lack access to sufficient food, according to an Emergency Food Security and Nutrition Assessment (EFSNA) conducted by FAO, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Programme (WFP).
Mr Hassan spoke to Murielle Saar.
