Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi said the pledge will help Yemen avoid a civil war.
The financial pledge was made during a Friends of Yemen meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York. In September, international donors had promised $6.4 billion in aid to Yemen during a meeting in Saudi Arabia.
No details were give on which countries were giving the $1.46 billion.
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said Turkey pledged $100 million in aid that will help Yemen to lift its economy out of the collapse.
"Seventy percent of Yemen's problem is economic. The new pledge will help Yemen avoid a civil war which would be a local, regional and a global threat," Hadi told reporters after the meeting.
