ICRC joins the World Bank in Yemen Food Security Response and Resilience Project
The Yemen Food Security Response and Resilience Project (FSRRP) was approved by the World Bank Board on May 11, 2021. The project’s objective is to improve the availability of and access to food and nutritious diets, both in the short and medium-term, for targeted households and to enhance Yemen's capacity to respond to food insecurity.

Recognizing the fluidity of the conflict environment in Yemen, the FSRRP was designed as a scalable and flexible platform offering a combination of short- and medium-term activities across four components including:
- improving household incomes through cash-for-work for agricultural production,
- increasing production and sale of nutritious crop, livestock and fish products,
- improving the nutritional status of vulnerable rural households and
- capacity building for food security management and climate resilience.
The original grant recipients and implementing institutions of the FSRRP were the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Food Programme (WFP) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Under additional financing made available for this program in 2022, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) will join this partnership to assist in the scale-up of activities related to animal vaccination, apiculture and capacity building efforts.
