Dolakha District Food Security Bulletin
PDF File Size: 395 KB | Download   
The district was affected by the 25 April earthquake and major aftershock on 12 May (with the epicenter in Dolakha), with severe impact on livelihood activities, like agriculture, livestock, tourism, and infrastructure (hydropower/road construction). The DFSN reported a loss of roughly NPR 20 million in livestock, 4.9 million in agriculture and an income decrease of more than 60 percent from the tourism sector. Because of the impact on food security and livelihoods, the DFSN classified 11 northern VDCs in cluster A (see the map above) as highly food insecure (Phase 3), a situation where food consumption gaps are higher than normal and households are able to meet minimum food needs only through the accelerated depletion of livelihood assets. In those VDCs, 90 percent of houses were damaged and out of those roughly 50 percent lost almost 70 percent of their food stock. Because of the district’s remoteness and difficult geographic terrain, the provision of timely relief support was challenging. Added to this, income from Non Timber Forest Products (NTFPs), tourism and wage employment, particularly in the Upper Tamakoshi hydropower project, was also significantly affected.
