Yemen remains one of the world’s largest humanitarian crises. Civil war within the country has waged for nine years at this point, causing economic collapse and more than half of the population - 18 million people, including nearly 10 million children – to require lifesaving support, according to UNICEF figures.

In a bid to remind audiences everywhere of this critical news story, non-profit newsroom The New Humanitarian has just published its Yemen Listening Project. But there is a twist.

This is a participatory journalism project that has seen more than 100 people submit contributions, expressed in their own words and their own ways, on how their lives have been impacted by the ongoing conflict.

In this week's podcast, we speak to Middle East editor Annie Slemrod with the project co-ordinator and Yemeni refugee, Nuha Al-Junaid.

Stay tuned to find out how to encourage people to come forward with their contributions on a sensitive story, workflow tips on managing the stack of submissions, and some of the risks to bear in mind, too.
