Parliamentary questions
8 August 2018
E-003201/2018
Answer given by Mr Stylianides on behalf of the European Commission

Since the beginning of the current conflict in March 2015, the EU has allocated EUR 233.7 million in humanitarian aid to Yemen through its partner organisations. The EU has given priority to the needs of children and women through integrated nutrition and health programmes as well as food security. The EU has provided life-saving assistance to displaced populations, most recently to the new internally displaced persons (IDP) originating from areas affected by the military offensive launched in Hodeida in June 2018. The EU continues to follow closely the worrying developments in Yemen and its unfolding humanitarian crisis.

Besides humanitarian aid, the Commission's ongoing development assistance to Yemen amounts to EUR 173 million. It is focused on building the resilience of crisis affected communities and helping maintain the basic functions of local state authorities. In 2018, the EU plans to scale up existing development actions in food and nutrition security through the creation of sustainable livelihoods, access to basic services and support to the consolidation of the national food and nutrition security information system.

In addition to financial support for life saving and resilience building activities, the EU continues to engage actively with all parties to the conflict, urging for a political solution. The EU fully supports current United Nations-led efforts to bring peace to Yemen.
