About Us

The Yemen Data Project is an independent data collection project aimed at collecting and disseminating data on the conduct of the war in Yemen, with the purpose of increasing transparency and promoting accountability of the actors involved. In the absence of official military records from any of the parties to the conflict, the Yemen Data Project was founded in 2016 with the overall goal of contributing independent and neutral data to increase transparency over the conduct of the war and to inform humanitarian response, human rights advocacy, media coverage and policy discussion.

The Yemen Data Project is a not-for-profit project and is contributed to by international and national security, human rights, humanitarian, and academic experts. The project and all activities are independently funded to avoid any partisan affiliation.
