Revised Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (YHRP): The YHRP was revised down from 1.8B $ to 1.63B $ to reach 12.6M people with lifesaving assistance. The revised YHRP figures represent  7% decrease in the number of people targeted and 9.3% decrease in financial requirements.

Despite this, humanitarian agencies hold that the scale of needs in Yemen remains enormous, and these changes do not reflect a change in context. Rather, they are guided by programme consolidation as a result of funding shortages, demonstrated performance to date and more precise needs information.
