Sustaining Yemen: Ensuring Humanitarian Aid Amid Shifting Conflict Dynamics
After more than seven years of war, Yemen remains mired in a humanitarian crisis with more than 24 million people in need of humanitarian assistance. While a two-month ceasefire recently brokered by the United Nations may present an opportunity to deliver life-saving aid, recent humanitarian funding constraints could impede the extent of relief efforts. Furthermore, evolving warring tactics and political interests of parties to the conflict challenge humanitarian aid agencies ability to provide critical services and resources. With limited international attention to support further reconciliation among the parties, the fighting is likely to see a resurgence at, or before, the end of the implemented ceasefire agreement with significant humanitarian consequences.Please join the CSIS Humanitarian Agenda on May 24 at 9 a.m. EST, for a webinar on the implications of evolving political and conflict dynamics on Yemen's humanitarian crisis. The panel will feature Radhya Al-Mutawakel, Chairperson at Mwatana for Human Rights, Amanda Catanzano, Senior Director of International Programs Policy and Advocacy at International Rescue Committee, Paul Harvey, Partner of Humanitarian Outcomes, and Summer Nasser, Chief Executive Officer of Yemen Aid. The discussion will be moderated by Jacob Kurtzer, director and senior fellow of the CSIS Humanitarian Agenda.
This event is made possible through the generous support of USAID.
