War in Yemen has already set back development by more than two decades, magnifying existing development challenges, creating new obstacles, and altering the country’s future trajectory dramatically. This report expands upon previous research1 by first analyzing how the conflict is changing development across four Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The four SDGs were chosen based upon core United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) priorities and are: SDG 1: No Poverty; SDG2: Zero Hunger; SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth; and, SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities. This, and previous work, was sponsored by UNDP.
