USAID is helping address the underlying issues of water management and limited access to safe water and sanitation in Yemen.

Yemen is suffering the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, exacerbated by its ongoing civil war. USAID development assistance in Yemen bridges the relief-to-development continuum and strengthens Yemen’s resiliency through programs that stabilize the economy, rebuild basic education and health systems, increase social cohesion, and improve water sector access and management.

Yemen is currently in the grip of one of the worst humanitarian disasters on the planet, exacerbated by over six years of active conflict. Access to basic services has been drastically reduced against a backdrop of increasing rates of food insecurity, malnutrition, the reemergence of cholera, and near complete economic collapse.
