Between January and March, the food security situation across most of Nepal remained stable due to a good summer crop harvest that took place mostly in October-December 2010. However, in some localized areas where the summer crop was impaired, the situation has deteriorated.
Far Western Hill and Mountain districts were particularly affected by crop losses and multiple districts are experiencing a high level of food insecurity. Surkhet, Dailekh, Doti, Dadeldhura and Bajura are of particular concern, where multiple VDCs experienced average summer crop losses that exceeded 30 percent due to late insufficient rainfall and in some areas hailstorm damage. In this region, NeKSAP District Food Security Networks identified 45 VDCs that are “highly food insecure (Phase-3)” where people are coping by consuming less preferred food, reducing the size of meals and selling household assets as the household food stock is sufficient for 1-2 months only, and local employment opportunities have generally decreased by 10-30 percent.
In the Karnali region, WFP food assistance has stabilized the food security situation, in the previous bulletin it was suggested that the situation could significantly deteriorate as household food stocks were very low. Due to WFP’s food assistance and the work of other development agencies, household food stock has recovered and for most households should last until the winter harvest. In addition, wage labor opportunities have improved due to the resumption of development work being carried out by a number of agencies. Many households are also receiving remittances (for instance, about 30 percent of households in Jumla and Kalikot are receiving remittance from India).
Winter crops (wheat and barley) will be harvested across Nepal between April and June; this is expected to improve the food security situation across the country. The District Agriculture Development Offices (DADOs) and NeKSAP District Food Security Networks (DFSNs) have reported a generally normal winter crop production outlook.
