Administrative boundary datasets for levels 0, 1 and 2 (international, governorate, and district) for Yemen approved for use by OCHA Yemen Country Office in November 2015.

Admin Level 1= Governorate = Mohafaza

Admin Level 2 = District = Modeeriyyah

PCODES are those used by Yemen Central Statistical Office. "YE" is added as a prefix for the codes.

The process of clearing Admin 3 (sub-district) has not been finished and this level is not included. Additionally, the other layers (0, 1, and 2) may undergo minor modification in the coming months.
