Food Security Bulletin ( March - April 2005 )
PDF File Size: 61 KB | Download   
This monitoring cycle marks the harvesting season of wheat, barley and potato. In most districts covered, yields are up over last year; and in several districts last year’s yields were high to begin with. As a result, food stocks in many respondents’ households currently exceed expectations. Moreover, retail prices of basic food items are down in most road head or district headquarter markets compared to the last cycle.
With the exception of Central and Eastern regions, short term migration has also decreased over last cycle, mainly because this period included the winter crop harvesting season and Nepali New Year. Overall, the movement of people and goods is somewhat relaxed compared to the previous period. As in previous cycles, households used multifaceted livelihood strategies such as wage labor, portering, collecting herbs and selling fruits
and vegetables. WFP’s Rural Community Infrastructure Works (RCIW) programme also augmented many household incomes.
These data and trends suggest some improvement in household food security in many cases and do not include indications of abnormal conditions of exceptional concern. The Bulletin includes the WFP Definition of Emergencies (p. 9) which might be helpful in appreciating our criteria of exceptional food insecurity that warrants an emergency response.
