Yemen: New Methods Are Transforming Farms and Improving Food Output

Farmers in Yemen, a country that has endured years of conflict, are finding innovative ways to produce food for themselves and their communities despite the many obstacles they face. Vegetable farmer Zaid Saleh Aldarbi has transformed his once-struggling farm in Yemen’s agricultural heartland into a thriving venture.

Through World Bank support from the Emergency Social Protection Enhancement and COVID19 Response Project, Aldarbi got essential resources like a drip irrigation system that uses less water, shade nets to protect his crops, an electric generator, and fertilizers, all crucial in adapting his farm to changing climatic conditions. That, along with training on sound agricultural practices, has made a huge impact on his crop yields and livelihood.
