A joint report between the Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) has found that 3,154,572 people have become displaced because of the ongoing war in Yemen.

Of the 3,154,572 people displaced, 2,205,102 remain displaced across the country and 949,470 have attempted to return home.

“The crisis is forcing more and more people to leave their homes in search of safety,” Ita Schuette, UNHCR’s Deputy Representative in Yemen said on Friday.

“IDP (Internally Displaced Peoples) returnees are considered to remain within the displacement cycle as long as they have not achieved a sustainable reintegration and their needs remain high, as is also the case for the non-displaced host community,” said Laurent De Boeck, IOM Chief of Mission to Yemen.

The reported highlighted that for the majority of displaced people, the main concerns are access to food, shelter and drinking water.

In all, these figures bring the total IDP’s in Yemen to approximately eight per cent of the country’s population.
