Two major earthquakes struck Nepal within weeks: a 7.8 magnitude on 25 April (epicentre Lamjung District, Western Region), followed by a 7.3 magnitude on 12 May (epicentre Dolakha district, Central Region). A FAO/WFP food security assessment is ongoing. FAO is assessing agricultural damage in 6 severely affected districts: Nuwakot, Dhading, Gorkha, Rasuwa, Dolakha and Sindhupalchowk. The latter two were severely hit by both quakes.The impacts on food security and agricultural livelihoods are expected to be very high. – Most marketing activities are severely disrupted, hampering access to food. – Stored food, seed stocks, storage facilities, livestock, fisheries, irrigation and other livelihood assets are damaged/lost. – Farmers were harvesting wheat, planting maize and approaching the rice planting season when the earthquakes hit. – Wheat and maize crops in the mountain and hill areas are likely to be most affected due to landslides and disruption of harvesting operations. Prospects for the forthcoming 2015 summer crops (rice and millet) are also in jeopardy.
