international report

In addition, an international report revealed the catastrophic impact of the Houthi militia on the agricultural sector in the Tihama Plain area along the Red Sea coast, the most important agricultural area in the country.

He said that since 2018, the Tihama Plain has produced nearly a quarter of the local cereal crop. According to an analysis of satellite images conducted by the Observatory of Conflict and Environment in October 2020, 46 percent of the agricultural land area in Wadi Zabid and Rima in the Tihama plain experienced significant losses of biomass because the area had little resistance before the conflict due to management practices .Sustainable water.

There has been a significant decline in agriculture and yields due to the economic impacts of the conflict. In addition, population losses, infrastructure damage, loss of agricultural inputs, and reduced management contributed to the decline, which in turn significantly affected livelihoods and food security in the region.

The report explained that the lack of access is due to the presence of explosives, as landmines were manually planted without a recognizable pattern along the coast, in and around major cities and towns, and along transport routes. The explosives also hampered the movement of farmers, damaged vehicles and agricultural equipment, and desert fields, leaving many farmers without their only source of income during the past six years of conflict.
