1. The food security situation has improved significantly compared to the previous quarter (July—September 2012) and the situation is reportedly stable overall according to the NeKSAP District Food Security Networks (DFSNs) of seventy-two districts across the country.
2. Exceptions were found in twenty-five Village Development Committees (VDCs), mostly in Rukum and Dailekh districts where pocket areas have been classified as ―moderately food insecure (Phase-II)‖. This is attributed to maize crop production failure coupled with limited employment opportunities.
3. For the rest of the country, the food security situation has improved due to the summer crop harvest and increased availability of other income sources: overall household income and purchasing power has increased through sales of high value commodities and a rise in wage rates. The NeKSAP DFSNs reported good sales of high value crops across the country: citrus, ginger, honey, large cardamom, and dairy products in the hills; sug-
arcane, fish, nuts, and banana in tarai; and apple and NTFPs (Jatamasi, Katuki, Sugandhawal etc.) in the mountains. According to the Nepal Rastra Bank, wage rate index has increased by 29 percent compared to the same period last year.
4. Despite the overall seasonal improvement in the food security situation, a significant number of population, equivalent to a quarter of rural households, reportedly consume an inadequate diet. Dalits, wage labourers and households in the mountain region have a higher incidence of inadequate food consumption.
5. A joint crop verification mission of the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MoAD), WFP and FAO reported that the production of main summer crops of Paddy, Maize and Millet has declined by 11.3, 8.3 and 3.0 percent respectively compared to last year (2011/12). The total summer crop output for 2012/13 is estimated at 6.8 million MT: 4.5 million mt for paddy, 2.0 million mt for maize, and 0.3 million mt millet.
6. The food security situation is expected to deteriorate in the Far Western Hills and Mountains, Karnali, and in some VDCs of Rukum and Dailekh over the next quarter.
