This issue covers the period April-June 2011, the harvesting/post- harvest season of main winter crops of wheat and barley. The overall food security situation has remained stable across Nepal. This is mainly attributed to a good harvest of winter crops (April-June) and employment opportunities generated by development aid. The main winter crops of wheat and barley production increased by 12.2 percent and 9.6 percent respectively compared to last year. The wheat production set a national record of 1.75 million MT (MoAC/WFP/FAO Joint
Assessment of 2010/11 Winter Crops, June 2011). The situation however remains a concern for some in some pocket areas where crops were affected by localized natural disasters like insufficient rainfall and hailstorm.
The Saptari district in the Eastern Terai reported a 60 percent reduction of wheat and spring paddy production due to a dry spell. This was cumulative to the 2010 reduction of 40-60 percent in the main paddy production. The NeKSAP District Food Security network (DFSN) has identified 28 VDCs in the south-western belt of the district as highly food insecure (Phase 3). Among the affected are the landless, small land holders and dallit communities. The monsoon has been progressing well and the main paddy plantation is currently at its peak. The population has benefited from employment opportunities from agricultural activities. The situation is therefore likely to improve gradually in the coming month.
Most of the Mid and the Far Western Hill and Mountain (MFWHM) districts reported a food secure situation (Phase 1). Overall wheat and barley production ranged from normal to a 30 percent or higher increase compared to last year. Development programmes supported by the government, PAF, WFP, FINNIDA-RVWRMP, RAP, and Helvetas have created good employment opportunities. Although the entire Dolpa as well as parts of Mugu, Humla, Dalilekh and Baitadi are moderately food insecure (Phase 2), the overall situation is better than the same time last year when these areas were mostly categorized as highly food insecure (Phase 3).
