Moyer, J.D., Bohl, D.K., Hanna, T., Mapes, B.R. and Rafa, M. (2019).“Assessing the Impact of War on Development in Yemen”. Frederick S. Denver: Frederick S. Pardee Center for International Futures, Josef Korbel School of International Studies. UN Report.

Prior to the escalation of conflict in 2015, development in Yemen was strained. A country of 30 million people, Yemen ranked: (a) 153rd on the Human Development Index (HDI); (b) 138th in extreme poverty; (c) 147th in life expectancy; (d) 172nd in educational attainment; and, (e) was in the World Bank low-middle income category. Projections suggest that Yemen would not have achieved any of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 even in the absence of conflict.
