Rapid Assessment Internal Migration
PDF File Size: 7.28 MB | Download   
From October 10, 2004 to March 11, 2005, WFP conducted a rapid assessment of internal migration in the urban, semi-urban, and rural parts of Bhaktapur, Lalitpur, and Kathmandu districts as well as Kathmandu Metropolitan Area and the headquarters of five districts (Dailekh, Gorkha, Kailali, Kavre and Rupandehi); rural areas and municipalities of two districts (Nawalparasi and Jhapa); and headquarters, rural areas, and municipalities of eight other districts: Banke, Chitwan, Dang, Kanchanpur, Kapilvastu, Makwanpur, Morang and Surkhet. (see map overleaf) The objective was to take a provisional look at the food security of a cross-section of migrants. It was designed to be comprehensive in scope and cover not only conflict-induced, but also economic and other types of in-country migration so as to place any findings of conflict-induced in the context of other types of migration. For the purposes of this assessment, a migrant is defined as: Any person(s) who for all practical purposes have shifted permanent residence to an identifiably different location within Nepal for any reason ranging from earning constraints to displacement by flooding or conflict. From the perspective of the mandate of the World Food Programme, the findings of this particular assessment of various migrant populations are not a cause for serious concern but do highlight the need for continued monitoring of migration patterns and their link to basic needs in collaboration with concerned partners. Although this is primarily an assessment of food security, the report is also a medium for WFP to share its more general findings with a wider audience immediately after they have become available.
