The Government of Nepal has given high importance to ensuring food security for all its citizens. The country’s Interim Constitution of 2007 has given recognition to food sovereignty as a basic human right. Recently, policy makers have shown increased interest in revitalizing the national food security monitoring system. Food security has figured prominently in planning and policy documents so that the 2007‐2010 Interim Plan devoted a major chapter to aspects of food security ranging from the right to food and equity, availability, access and utilization issues (the latter through nutrition and food safety), to early warning and disaster preparedness and response.Despite policy interest and field level efforts, the food security situation has deteriorated in recent years in parts of the country. The country has been especially hard hit by the rise in food prices and recurrent episodes of drought. Consequently, the food self‐sufficient ratio is in decline with the current food grain shortage for the 2009 fiscal year estimated at approximately 400,000 Mt. In response to the high food prices, the European Union has financed three substantial project activities under its food facility. The first one, to be implemented by FAO, provides additional agricultural inputs and builds capacity of producers in order to raise agricultural productivity. The second one, implemented by WFP, provides productive safety nets to vulnerable populations as a result of natural disasters and high food prices. The third component, implemented by WFP with FAO technical ssistance, increases the extent to which national institutions participate in, and gradually take ownership of, major components of food security monitoring for Nepal.
