Nepal Food Security Bulletin, Issue No. 29 ( October 2010)
PDF File Size: 2.01 MB | Download   
This Food Security Bulletin covers the period July-September and is focused on the Mid and Far Western Hill and Mountain (MFWHM) region (typically the most food insecure region of the country). July – August is an agricultural lean period in Nepal and typically a season of increased food insecurity. In addition, flooding and landslides caused by monsoon regularly block transportation routes and result in localised crop losses.
During the 2010 monsoon 1,600 families were reportedly displaced due to flooding, the Karnali Highway and other trade routes were blocked by landslides and significant crop losses were reported in Kanchanpur, Dadeldhura, western Surkhet and south- eastern Udayapur.
In total, 49,300 people are estimated to be highly food insecure in the Karnali region, this represents a reduction of 58 percent] compared to the same period last year. The year-on-year improvement is largely the result of income from cash crops including walnuts and apples and sale of Yarchagumba (medicinal herb), WFP backlog payment and opening of the Tibetan border in Mugu, Humla and Dolpa districts.
The overall national food security situation began to improve in September due to the harvest of maize and an improvement in road access in hill and mountain areas following the end of the monsoon.
Maize is one of the major summer crops and the first to be harvested. At a national level, maize production is reported to be normal to moderately impaired. The national outlook for paddy and millet which will be harvested in most areas by the end of November is also expected to be normal to moderately impaired.
