Yemen: shocks, agricultural livelihoods and food security, monitoring report, December 2021 – Yemen

This report presents an analysis of the effects of natural and man-made shocks on Yemen’s agrifood system. It analyzes the results of a field assessment conducted from November 2020 to February 2021.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is implementing a project to contribute to the collection and analysis of data related to shocks affecting agricultural livelihoods and food security, in order to inform evidence-based programming in selected countries. The objective is to assess the effects of these shocks on the agri-food system, which includes crops, livestock and fisheries, food supply, livelihoods and food security of rural populations. Information is collected from key sources in the production process: producer households, traders or traders, input suppliers, extension agents and other key informants.

This report covers the second set of data collected through the FAO monitoring system in Yemen. A first round was collected earlier in 2020, followed by a first report published in March 2021.

The report was made possible by the support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The contents of this report are the sole responsibility of FAO and do not necessarily reflect the views of USAID or the Government of the United States of America.
