Japan provides US$7 million to promote food security in Yemen

Together with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Japan will provide ¥771 million (US$7 million) to improve food security in Yemen.

16 million people face acute food insecurity in Yemen. In addition, ongoing conflicts and the COVID-19 crisis have exacerbated the already weak economy, leading to devastating impacts on vulnerable populations. These funds will be used to carry out emergency activities, increase access to safe fuel and energy, and enhance livestock productivity. The funding plan includes providing stoves using a cash-for-work approach to create employment opportunities for selected youth.
