FAO Nepal Initial Earthquake Response: Rebuilding Resilient Agricultural Livelihoods (June 2015)
PDF File Size: 289 KB | Download   
In a country where two out of three people depend on agriculture for their livelihoods, the earthquakes have been disastrous for many of Nepal’s farmers. Following the earthquakes and hundreds of aftershocks, an estimated 1 million people have been exposed to food insecurity without immediate support for crop and livestock production and to rebuild agricultural livelihoods, according to the Nepal Food Security Cluster. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is meeting the immediate needs of the hardest-hit farmers, providing cereal and vegetable seeds, airtight grain storage bags, and nutritional supplements and shelter for animals. FAO is also helping farmers become more resilient and better able to cope with future crises, such as landslides, in natural disaster-prone Nepal. FAO has already distributed 5 kilogram bags of rice seeds to 40 000 households in the six most-affected districts, in time for farmers to plant before the monsoon. As part of the revised United Nations Flash Appeal for Nepal, FAO urgently seeks USD 23.4 million, to assist around 900 000 people in 200 000 households. The majority of these are women and children. To date, only 13 percent has been received, leaving a funding gap of USD 20 million.
