The International Monetary Fund says one-third of war-torn Yemenis are food insecure due to rising global prices.
The UN Food and Energy Crisis Group says the situation in Ukraine has affected 1.6 billion people worldwide over the past three months.
“Three months after the start of the Russian operation in Ukraine, the world is facing a growing crisis that has affected the lives and assets of 1.6 billion people worldwide,” the UN agency said in a statement.
The International Monetary Fund also said on Tuesday that the global rise in commodity prices would exacerbate Yemen’s economic and humanitarian crisis. According to the report, one-third of Yemenis are deprived of food security due to rising global prices.
Meanwhile, the Yemeni Deputy Minister of Finance for Planning and Statistics recently announced that the Saudi-Emirati aggression coalition, which has waged war against Yemen, has caused the country one hundred and sixty billion dollars in GDP alone.
