Emergency Update - 2 - Food Security Situation in the Eastern Terai Districts of Saptari and Siraha
PDF File Size: 637 KB | Download   
Since the paddy crop failure of last summer in Saptari and Siraha, the food security situation for many poor households in these two districts in the Eastern Terai remains precarious. The current floods across the Terai have affected many parts of Saptari and Siraha exacerbating the situation. Unfortunately, ethnic tension and insecurity has prevented WFP from conducting an in-depth emergency food security assessment in these districts and to date, the delivery of humanitarian assistance to people most in need. The current flood situation may provide an opportunity to do so. Despite the security situation in the Eastern Terai, the WFP field surveillance monitor collected household level information during the past 6 months from 70 randomly selected households in Saptari and Siraha. The sample is too small to provide reliable statistical information on the food security status of the population. Results should therefore be further verified and carefully interpreted. Never the less, these results provide some indication of the magnitude of the problem and provide a rough baseline for a rapid food security assessment.
