On 24 February, the Prime Minister announced that the UK would be providing £200 million of funding for the 2019/20 financial year in response to the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. The UK is supporting Yemen through £6.6 million of funding from CSSF Fund this year. This funding will support different programmes, including bolstering the UN’s capacity to facilitate the peace process, working with groups formally outside the formal peace process and establishing long-lasting conflict resolution mechanisms in Yemeni communities.
