UN Agencies Describe Success In Yemen Village Water Access

24 Sep 2019 by Local Press Report

More than 20 million people in Yemen are food insecure and water is a scarce resource, with access further restricted by over four years of conflict. Through support from the International Organization for Migration (IOM), in partnership with the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), access to water has been improved for Yemeni farmers living across nearly 4,000 acres of agricultural land in the coastal governorate of Lahj. In the area of Al Faradha, improved access to water for 2,000 farmers, as reported by the local community, has also meant an end to a 37-year-old local conflict.
