Nepal Food Security Bulletin - Year 2014, Issue 41.
Abstract:
This issue covers the period of mid-November 2013 to mid-March 2014,the second trimester of Nepalese Fiscal Year 2070/71. This bulletin is primarily based on the outcomes of NeKSAP district food security network (DFSN) meetings held in 72 of 75 districts and the results of the NeKSAP household survey,a nationally representative sample survey, collected between November 2013 and March 2014. In this period:Most parts of the country were classified as minimally food insecure,a situation where households can secure food and non-food needs without changing livelihood strategies. Nevertheless,the food security situation in this period has deteriorated compared to mid–July to mid–November 2013 when only six VDCs in Jumla were classified as moderately food insecure. 184 VDCs,mostly in the mid– and far–western development regions,were classified as moderately food insecure,a situation where households are able to meet minimal food needs with traditional coping strategies, but are unable to afford some essential non-food expenditures without engaging in irreversible coping strategies. Sale of agricultural products (including livestock),daily wages, and remittances were major sources of income that contributed to improved household food security with their share in household income estimated at 26.6, 24.1 and 20.6 percent respectively. According to Nepal Rastra Bank, remittance inflow decreased by 3.2 percent during February/March 2014 compared to the previous months of the fiscal year. Summer crops were harvested in this period and as a result household food stocks have increased. The average household cereal stock was measured at 338 kg, which provides roughly 4.2 months of staple food sufficiency for an average household. According to the NeKSAP household survey, 80.4 percent of households had adequate food consumption. #HouseholdSurvey
