USAID is working with communities to peacefully resolve conflicts and reinforce social cohesion in Yemen.
Yemen is suffering the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, exacerbated by eight years of conflict. War has made communities much more vulnerable in Yemen, pushing more than 15.6 million people into extreme poverty and landing Yemen near the bottom of the United Nations Development Program's Human Development Index (Yemen ranks 183th out of 191 countries). USAID promotes responsive governance, community-led peace and reconciliation processes, and the protection of human rights. In early 2023, the Mission launched three new programs to continue building a foundation for peace and stability.
