Crop Situation Update, Issue No. 8 ( April 2008)
PDF File Size: 1.12 MB | Download   
Highlights:
1. Communities in the Hills and Mountains of the Far- and Mid- Western Development Regions face a serious threat to food insecurity due to poor winter crop production (20-40 percent crop loss). This, coupled with rising food prices and high rates of poverty and malnutrition in these areas, place the population at high risk.
2. This situation is likely to become more severe as of June when households will have depleted their wheat stocks and become dependent on markets for their food supply.
3. Under the ongoing emergency operation WFP is assisting almost 150,000 beneficiaries in the most food insecure communities in the Far- and Mid-Western Development Regions.
4. WFP is monitoring Nepal’s poor to better understand the impact of rising food price on their food security.
