WFP Starts Emergency Food Deliveries For Drought-Affected Western Nepal
PDF File Size: 97 KB | Download   
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in Nepal has started transporting
emergency food assistance to support over 225,000 people in the Far- and Mid-western regions affected by this winter’s drought. To jumpstart the process, WFP is borrowing close to 800mts of rice from the Nepal Food Corporation. The operation plans to provide emergency food assistance to communities living in
drought-affected areas through an accelerated Food-for-Work programme. The 225,000 beneficiaries, including over 40,000 direct participants, will earn a 2-month ration of rice and fortified wheat flour through participation in the programme’s quick impact projects. Dependent on donor funding, this emergency operation is currently funded at a level of 28%. “Food insecurity is already a fact of life in these districts, and we are very concerned that the effects
of the drought will exacerbate what is already a precarious situation,” said Richard Ragan, the County Director for the World Food Programme in Nepal. “To further complicate things, many of the target areas are located in some of Nepal’s most remote locations and could require very expensive airlift operations. With the rains approaching, the time to act is now if we are to be able to save lives in these areas.” The VDCs most seriously affected by the drought are in the district of Bajura in far-western Nepal, as well as nine districts in mid-western Nepal: Jumla, Humla, Mugu, Dolpa, Kalikot, Jajarkot,
Dailekh, Rukum and Rolpa. Already chronically food insecure, these VDCs are experiencing precarious conditions due to the adverse weather circumstances. Should funding be forthcoming, all the affected areas should receive WFP’s emergency food assistance.
