General Antonio Guterres convened the event to draw attention to the crisis and mobilise increased humanitarian support. Some 3.3 million Yemeni people have been internally displaced as a result of the conflict. The Norwegian Government will allocate a further NOK 150 million to the humanitarian efforts in Yemen.
The additional funding from Norway will be channelled through the UN, the Red Cross Red Crescent movement, and humanitarian civil society organisations that are working with local partners in Yemen. In addition to this funding, Norway is providing support through multilateral channels such as the UN Central Emergency Response Fund (Cerf) and the World Bank.
