World Food Programme (WFP) Nepal and the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development (MoALD) have produced the second joint mVAM Market Update through a detailed assessment of the price of essential commodities in 68 districts in the first round, and 62 districts in the second round during the COVID-19 national lockdown. In Nepal, despite COVID-19 physical limitations and lockdowns, WFP uses mobile Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping(mVAM) tools such as SMS and phone calls to assess the markets and track food-security trends in real time.

Highlights of Nepal COVID 19 – mVAM Market Update 2# include:
• Marginal increase in the prices of the basic food commodities in 15 major markets compared to the first week of March and April 2020.
• More than half of the interviewed traders acknowledged low demand for commodities and insufficient food availability in the markets
• 90 percent of the interviewed traders reported low and declining supply of commodities to markets.
• The Government of Nepal has taken measures to facilitate the transportation of goods from farmers to markets in several provinces
