This bulletin provides the latest update on the food security situation in 37 districts, covered by the field surveillance system of the WFP Food Security Monitoring and Analysis System (FSMAS) using the food security phase classification methodology. Over the period July to September 2008, the number of people highly and severely food insecure increased by about 50% compared to the previous quarter due to severe flooding in the East and Western Terai districts, roads obstruction because of incessant rainfall and landslides, rise in food prices and decreased production of maize and other local crops. The food security situation in the flood affected districts of Eastern and Western Terai remains precarious, requiring close monitoring, while in the majority of other districts the food security situation is likely to improve in November-December due to harvesting of the paddy crop. Decreased maize and paddy production in some districts may indicate a deteriorating food insecurity situation from January onwards. Map 1 and 2 show the food security situation for July-September and its likely evolution during the period November-December. Pages 12 to 18 provide a detailed description of food security for most districts ranked according to their overall phase classification. Table 3 on page 19 gives detailed estimates of the number of highly and severely food insecure populations. Pages 5-6 provide an overview of selected household food security indicators in their respective food security phase classifications.
