According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) allocation aims to provide aid to an estimated 80% of the population.
Official data states that factors such as armed conflict, economic shocks, and climate change are the leading cause of rising malnutrition rates in Yemen.
According to a recent analysis conducted by the United Nations, there is a significant impact on children who are under the age of five due to the increasing rates of malnutrition, as noted OCHA. The 4.3 billion-dollar 2023 appeal for Yemen is currently just over 24 percent funded.
