WFP Extends Food Aid Operations In Nepal To Cover Continuing Drought
PDF File Size: 25 KB | Download   
The United Nations World Food Programme(WFP) will extend its food aid operations in Nepal to communities in three drought-affected districts of the Eastern Terai– an area seized with political violence over the last month – as well as continuing assistance until the end of June to drought victims in the Mid- and Far-Western Regions. The extended operations will bring the numbers of WFP drought-affected beneficiaries to 400,000, double the number reached in the first phase of the operation. The move follows a request for additional support from the Government on the basis of findings from a recently completed Government crop and food supply assessment mission, supported by WFP and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization. The report warns of food grain shortages totalling nearly 190,000 metric tons. The aim of the joint assessment was to estimate overall crop production in the country and to better understand impacts on household security in areas most affected by adverse weather
conditions. The results are based upon the data gathered in 15 districts in the Eastern and Western Terai and the Mid- and Far-West Regions of Nepal in November of 2006.
