UNDP Yemen: The Impact of Climate Change on Human Development in Yemen
02 December 2023
Yemen is frequently said to be experiencing one of the worst development and humanitarian crises in the world after more than eight years of ongoing conflict. At the same time, it is among the countries most vulnerable to climate change and for decades has faced a worsening water crisis. “The Impact of Climate Change on Human Development in Yemen,” seeks to better understand Yemen’s likely climate future and how climate change could affect economic and human development in the long run.
This report was commissioned by UNDP in the beginning of 2023 as part of a collaboration with the Frederick S. Pardee Center for International Futures, Josef Korbel School of International Studies, University of Denver and Appalachian State University.
