The war in Yemen has caused the largest humanitarian crisis in the world. The conflict escalated in 2015 and today 21 million people need urgent assistance in the form of food, water, shelter, and healthcare.
How to efficiently address the suffering in this torn country at the southernmost tip of the Arabian Peninsula? And what need to be the priorities of the international community in this regard?

To answer these and other questions, Cordaid, in collaboration with Yemeni partner organizations Family Counseling and Development Foundation (FCDF) and Yamaan Foundation, is organizing a conference on Yemen on December 2, 2021, in the The Hague Humanity Hub. The name of the event is Conference on Yemen: going beyond humanitarian assistance.
