Food Security Bulletin ( January - February 2005 )

This monitoring cycle is the traditional lean season in agricultural Nepal, and the participants in the WFP/VAM repeat survey deal with their low or exhausted food stocks through a range of livelihood strategies, from basket weaving to timber smuggling, as they have done before. This cycle’s data shows no indications of extraordinary stress or coping strategies. The odd exception is the Dailekh VDCs from where people migrated to headquarters in protest against the CPN(M) last November and missed out on the winter crop season; they are dealing with the lean season without the benefit of any food stock. With few exceptions, local yield predictions for the upcoming winter harvest of wheat and barley are consistently upbeat. Good rainfall all around and convenient snow cover to keep crops moist at the early stages of planting in higher altitude areas explain that. In several districts, harvesting of both crops is in progress at the time of publication of this bulletin.
The data would appear to indicate that prices have risen year-on-year. That might be of concern if people purchase all their staple foods at these rates from the markets that WFP/VAM includes in this survey. However, not only do rates fluctuate greatly, but respondents also indicate that they source foodstuffs from whichever market has the lowest prices. And market price is not a standalone indicator of food insecurity.
Accordingly, this cycle did not show up evidence of a general deterioration in food security in the districts and VDCs covered by WFP/VAM’s food security monitoring.
