As part of the study on Policy and Strategy for Poverty Alleviation and Sustainable
Household Food Security in Nepal (SPDD), a Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) was carried out in a Village Development Committee (VDC) in each of the districts – namely, Kailali, Sunsari, Achham and Mugu districts. These represent the western and eastern Terai, western mid-hills and western mountain regions of Nepal, respectively.The major objectives of PRA were (a) to assess the household food security situation of people living in the different physiographic regions and various socio-economic environments and situations of the country (e.g. physical, social and economic) and (b) to examine the major issues and underlying causes of poverty and food insecurity, including policy and institutional constraints, at the micro level. It also aimed to explore how and to what extent macroeconomic policies and priorities have been translated into actions at the micro level and the impact they have created on livelihood opportunities and food security.The study used a variety of PRA tools. These comprise the VDC sketch map, the social and natural resource map, the gender-disaggregated crop calendar, the 24-hour schedule of activities, seasonal calendars, well-being ranking, the Venn diagram and pairwise problem ranking.
