Ammon News - The World Bank approved an additional $150 million grant for the second phase of the Yemen Food Security Response and Resilience Project.

The new funding is designed to address food insecurity, strengthen resilience, and protect livelihoods in Yemen.

The grant will focus on agricultural production and climate-resilient restoration of productive assets to protect livelihoods, scale-up household-level food production and domestic food distribution using a combination of short- and medium-term interventions, and prioritize areas where food insecurity and malnutrition are chronic.

The World Bank's countrywide program for Yemen has reached $3.3 billion in the International Development Association (IDA) grants since 2016.
