Digital Food Security Atlas for Yemen

The Digital Food Security Atlas (DFSA) for Yemen expands the conventional concept of an atlas by allowing users to create their own maps in an interactive way. This innovative tool allows policymakers, analysts, researchers, and the interested public to visualize and analyze food security indicators such as physical and human geography, trade, infrastructure, agriculture, water, and health, and find patterns which can prompt ideas and generate hypotheses.

The Yemen DFSA was created by IFPRI in collaboration with the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation (MOPIC) and the Yemen Food Security Committee, with support from the European Commission and the World Bank.

There are two options for users to access the Yemen Digital Food Security Atlas:

  1. Download the Digital Food Security Atlas as a data package. Please be aware that the download file is over 100MB. This package can be viewed and queried with free and easy-to-install ArcReader software, and builds on a user-friendly interface that places a collection of interactive GIS maps linked to a relational geodatabase at users’ fingertips.
  2. Order the Digital Food Security Atlas on CD-Rom; for more information, please email yifei.liu@cgiar.org

The online version of the atlas is undergoing further development.
