Youth form more than 60 percent of the population in Taiz – estimated at just over 3 million in 2017. Taiz is currently undergoing its most violent phase of armed conflict since April 2015. Up until the end of 2016, the conflict had caused the displacement of 177,880 families, 3,371 deaths and 15,869 injuries, in addition to the destruction of the infrastructure and of 4,149 public and private properties. This has caused a humanitarian crisis, particularly in the three sieged urban districts (which have been under attack for 18 months) and some rural areas like Jabal Habshi and Al Ma’afer districts whose populations were recently forcibly displaced.
