Highlights:
1. As expected, between January and March the food security situation deteriorated in parts of the Mid- and Far-WesternHill and Mountain districts. This is primarily attributed to the poor summer crop production in November/December 2009. In highly and severely food insecure areas, households have depleted their food stocks and basic food prices have increased by 20 percent or more compared to the same time last year. Under- and unemployment is a huge problem in these areas with very little opportunities for income generating activities.
2.Four VDCs in Bajura were classified as severely food insecure. In these VDCs the population adopted livelihood damaging coping strategies including sale of livestock and
sale of household assets such as kitchen utensils. Out-migration has reportedly increased by 40 percent or more inthese areas.
3.Presence of external assistance including WFP Food/Cash for Asset building projects and development interventions by other agencies such as FINNIDA and GTZ in food insecure districts have prevented a further deterioration of the food security situation in the Far and Mid-West.
4.The NeKSAP District Food Security Networks in the Mid- and the Far-Western Development Regions have identified altogether 179 VDCs in 11 districts that are highly or severely food insecure. The estimated number of food insecure people has increased by 1.2 percent to 23.6 percent of the population, or an estimated 0.6 million people. In Bajura and Humla 85 and 87 percent respectively of the district population are at a critical level of food insecurity. Other districts facing a high level of food insecurity include Mugu, Kalikot, Jumla, Dailekh, Achham, Doti, Bajhang, Darchula and Baitadi.
5.In the central, western and eastern regions, the food security situation has remained stable. Although the summer crop production 2009/2010 across the country was reduced by 11 percent for paddy and 4 percent for maize, the population in these regions has alternative livelihood options available including the sale of cash crops and wage labour.
6.Food price inflation remains of significant concern. The Nepal Rastra Bank’s March 2010 data indicates that recent year-on-year food price inflation is over 18 percent. The price of food grains has remained relatively stable over the past quarter.However, prices are anticipated to increase until the next harvest.
