Food Security Bulletin, Issue No.17 (May 2007)
Abstract:
This issue of WFP’s food security bulletin provides an update of the current food security situation in 36 districts of Nepal covered under the surveillance activity of Food Security Monitoring and Analysis System expected the food security situation during the months of March—April has improved compared to January—February as the lean period comes to an end and most of the winter crops have been harvested. According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives the wheat production was very good and increased by 8.68% compared to last year. However, due to late rainfall, heavy snowfall, hailstorms, and disease infestation production in the Hills and Mountains of the Mid- and Far-West remained below expectations. As a consequence the food security situation in several areas in this region remain critical (see current hunger hotspots below) and WFP will therefore extend.
