In line with a resilience based approach, FAO’s plan of action for Yemen 2014 - 2018 aims at addressing the food and nutrition insecurity, contributing to the alleviation of rural poverty, and enhancing national capacities to manage and respond to risks and threats in the agriculture, fisheries, and water sectors.

FAO programs target migrants, refugees, IDPs, returnees, vulnerable groups, hosting families, smallholder farmers, fishing communities, also supporting evidence based policy development through strengthening sustainable food security information system in Yemen.

FAO is focusing on mainstreaming peacebuilding and conflict prevention into its strategic approach covering short, medium, and long-term intervention programs.
