Food Security Bulletin -13 (March-April 2006)
PDF File Size: 614 KB | Download   
This monitoring cycle marks the harvesting season of wheat, barely and potato. As anticipated in Bulletin 12, there has been a decrease in wheat and barley production this year, particularly in areas without irrigation facilities. Inadequate rain and snowfall during the planting and growth stages, in addition to localized hailstorms in some areas, have contributed to 20-100% crop losses.
In many market areas, moderate increases in the price of food items have been reported, compared to last year. These increases are thought to be a result of low production and higher prices at source markets. During the CPN(M) Bandh from March 14-20 and a SPA general strike from April 6-24, temporary but more dramatic increases in market prices were observed, due to the transportation constraints and diminishing stocks.
This cycle is traditionally a period of in-migration. As expected, many people were observed returning home, though perhaps to the low winter production and reduced household food stocks, a number of people were also reported to be leaving for employment opportunities.
These data and trends suggest an increase in household vulnerability to food insecurity, especially in the hill and mountain districts of the Mid-west and Far-west regions. The period of increased food insecurity is expected to continue until the next harvest in August.
