FAO Nepal Initial Earthquake Response: Rebuilding Resilent Agricultural Livelihoods ( June 2015)
PDF File Size: 289 KB | Download   
In a country where two out of three people depend on agriculture for their livelihoods, the earthquakes have been disastrous for many of Nepal’s farmers.Following the earthquakes and hundreds of aftershocks–some ranging in magnitude from 4.0 to 6.6–an estimated 1 million people have been exposed to food insecurity without immediate support for crop and livestock production and to rebuild agricultural livelihoods, according to the Nepal Food Security Cluster.The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is meeting the immediate needs of the hardest-hit farmers, providing cereal and vegetable seeds, airtight grain storage bags, and nutritional supplements and shelter for animals.FAO is also helping farmers become more resilient and better able to cope with future crises, such as landslides, in natural disaster-prone Nepal.FAO led the Food Security Cluster’s Agricultural Livelihoods Impact Appraisal in May and co-led the agriculture section of the Nepal Government’s Post Disaster Needs Assessment.
