This issue covers the period October-December 2010, the harvesting season of main summer crops paddy, maize and millet. The overall food security situation is reported to be stable across Nepal. Most of the Eastern, Central, and Western Hill and Mountain regions as well as the whole Terai belt are generally food secure. The Mid and Far Western Hill and Mountain districts, where there is a prevailing situation of chronic food insecurity, have reported low to moderate levels of food insecurity. This season appears to be one of the best seasons among the past years since the Food Security Phase Classification was first introduced in mid-2006. The seasonal improvement in the food security is mainly a attributed to the good harvest of summer crops in 2010, following a normal winter crop production in April/May 2010.
According to the preliminary estimates of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (January 2011), the 2010 summer crop production increased by 11.0 percent and 11.5 percent for paddy and maize respectively compared to last year while millet production increased by 1.0 percent. Despite the late start of monsoon, the rain remained active from end July till end September 2010, providing a good irrigation to the crops. Poor or moderately impaired summer crop production was reported in parts of Saptari, Siraha, Mahottari, Dhanusha, Dailekh, Mugu, Dadeldhura, Bajura and Doti districts where localized disasters like dry spell, flood, and hailstorm have affected the crops. In part of the eastern Terai, namely Saptari and Siraha districts, significant proportions of paddy field (more than 50 percent and 30 percent respectively) remained fallow due to dry spell and lack of irrigation facilities.
The Far Western Hill and Mountain districts reported a notable improvement in the short term food security over the previous quarter, which is mainly attributed to a normal summer crop production. The situation, however, is likely to deteriorate during the next quarter in the areas where no external support is envisaged.
