11 July 2015

Market situation update for the 2nd week of July 2015. Key highlights include:

  • During the second week of July 2015, several southern governorates, particularly Aden, Laheg, Addaleh, Abyan and Taiz continued to hugely suffer from scarce availability of basic commodities due to poor supply which resulted from the sustained conflict. These governorates are among the top ten in the country which were classified as "Phase 4 - Emergency" by the Yemen IPC analysis results published in June 2015.
  • Prices of most of the essential commodities have further increased in areas where fighting is still ongoing and intensified, largely in the southern governorates. For instance, prices of wheat flour during the second week of July 2015 rose by 112% in Aden and 97% in Ad Daleh compared to the pre-crisis period. National average fuel prices were also increased by about four folds from pre-crisis period, with Aden scoring the highest (around 800%).   
  • The national average cost of the partial food basket during the first two weeks of July was 25% higher than the pre-crisis period. The cost of living in the severely devastated southern governorates as well as Sa'ada and Hajja from the north are much worse due to diminished job opportunities and incomes coupled with high prices of scarce commodities. Consequently, the situation in the worst affected southern and northern governorates is rapidly deteriorating into a severe humanitarian crisis.
