Press Release: Food Security Situation (mid-July to mid-November 2015)
PDF File Size: 915 KB | Download   
District Food Security Networks (DFSN) in 66 districts met in mid-November to review the food security situation between mid-July to mid-November 2015 and provide an outlook for the food security situation between mid-November 2015 to mid-March 2016. Based on the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC), DFSNs classified Village Development Committees (VDCs) as either highly (Phase 3), moderately (Phase 2) or minimally (Phase 1) food insecure. Because of the ongoing unrest in the Terai, DFSN meetings were not conducted as planned in the 8 districts of Dhanusa, Mahottari, Sarlahi, Rautahat, Bara, Parsa, Siraha and Saptari; these will be rescheduled if possible in the near future. The April 2015 earthquake and subsequent aftershocks produced significant impacts on livelihoods and food security, particularly in the central, western and eastern hills, which were still evident in this period as well. Nevertheless, DFSNs reported that the food security situation has generally improved in the earthquake-affected districts as compared to the previous two rounds in mid-May and mid-July. DFSNs did not classify any VDCs as severely food insecure (phase 4) in this period. DFSNs classified 120 VDCs in 9 districts as highly food insecure (phase 3) and estimated that roughly 260,000 people of 60,000 households were currently highly food insecure and require humanitarian assistance. Phase 3 is defined as a situation where household food consumption gaps are higher than normal and households are able to meet minimum food needs only through the accelerated depletion of livelihood assets. DFSNs attributed the situation to earthquake impacts, production drops in summer crops (maize, paddy and millet), soaring market prices and the effects of the on-going fuel crisis.
