Worth noting, when a development expert says "headed for famine" it means Yemen NOW is at the point where people will be physically stunted for a generation and hundreds are distict from the idea that empty shelves at a grocery store could happen.
Sorry but this haunts me from my time in govt when we had to embrace these nuances because of international norms when you want to scream "BABIES ARE DYING" at the top of your lungs to get people motivated to fix it vs meeting an outdated technical definition.
"headed to famine" is the difference between "they are starving to death" and "they starved to death"
