In this reporting period district food security networks (DFSN) classified 6 Village Development Committees (VDCs) in Surkhet, namely Taranga, Lekhparajul, Hariharpur, Tatopani, Ghatgaon and Dharapani, as highly food insecure (Phase III). The floods and landslides in mid-August displaced a large number of households, destroyed food stocks and negatively affected livelihoods. In those VDCs, some 5,819 households (25,167 people) were reported as highly food insecure (Phase III) and the majority of the affected households were living in temporary shelters and relying on external support for food and non -food needs. DFSNs classified an additional 127 VDCs in 7 districts as moderately food insecure (Phase II). The number of moderately food insecure VDCs by district is as follows: Salyan (4), Jajarkot (9), Surkhet (9), Mugu (9), Humla (7), Saptari (58) and Siraha (31). DFSNs classified the rest of the country as minimally food insecure (Phase 1). See Map 1 for the geographic distribution of these areas. In the eastern development region 58 VDCs in Saptari and 31 VDCs in Siraha continued to be affected by last year’s paddy prod uc- tion loss and the situation is expected to improve only after paddy is harvested in late November. In the rest of the eastern development region, the food security situation improved, notably in Khotang, Bhojpur, Sankhuwasabha, Tehrathum, Panchthar and Taplejung. Districts in the far-western development region had a generally stable food security situation this period, with DFSNs reporting all VDCs and municipalities as minimally food insecure (Phase I). In some mid -western districts (particularly Banke, Bardiya, Surkhet and Dang) the food security situation, which had temporarily deteriorated as a result of the floods in August, improved during the latter half of the monitoring cycle and only 15 VDCs of Surkhet were reported as Phase II or worse. The western and central development regions continued to have a stable food security situation with all VDCs classified as minimally food insecure (P hase I). In this period the maize harvest was completed. The paddy harvest was completed in the mid- and far-western regions and partially completed in the other regions. DFSNs reported that in Banke paddy production was 20 percent lower compared to 2012/13, while in some VDCs of Surkhet and Mugu there was paddy production loss of more than 40 percent due to floods and hailstones. Overall, with late and poor monsoon rains, MoAD has forecasted a nation-wide paddy production loss in 2014/15. The Nepal Food Corporation (NFC) and development partners provide food assistance (subsidized or in-kind) in different parts of the country, primarily in the remote districts. DFSNs reported that NFC supplied 2,746 mt rice in different mountain districts of the country. WFP, as a part of its emergency response, provided food assistance to the flood affected families of Banke, Bardiya,Surkhet and Dang. A total of 2,054 mt of food (rice, pulses, vegetable oil, salt and super cereal) was provided to 45,140 households during August-December 2014. Similarly, WFP supported an additional 20,708 households with 1,458 mt of food in Bajhang, Map 2: Crop map (Paddy), Jul–Nov 2014 (Source: D FSNs) Bajura, Darchula, Dolpa, Humla, Jumla, Kalikot and Mug.
