  • Brief on the Food Security Situation in Nepal (Mid-July to mid-November 2017)2018-03-15

    This brief on the Food Security Situation in Nepal (Mid-July to mid-November 2017) includes the results of NeKSAP Technical Working Group (TWG) and/or District Food Security Network (DFSN) meetings held in different districts across Nepal in December 2017.
    These meetings analyzed the food security situation during the period of mid-July to mid-November 2017 (Nepali months of Shrawan to Kartik 2074) and following the restructured district and local government arrangements. Hence, unit of analysis is taken as Ward as opposed to Village Development Committee (VDC) in the past.

    It is reported that some districts could not organize meetings lack of resources (including the human resources) as the trimester meeting coincided with busy time of federal and provincial level elections. This brief includes data for 63 of the 77 districts. We will release Nepali version of this brief sooner.

  • Nepal mVAM Bulletin #22018-02-08

    The eight districts of the mid– and far-western mountains of Nepal are some of the most food insecure areas in the country. Poverty and stunting are much higher there than in other areas and the national average. Recurrence of acute shocks—most recently the 2015/16 winter drought—further erodes resilience.
    To track seasonal changes over time, a food security monitoring survey was started in November 2016 and repeated in June and December 2017.

  • Nepal mVAM Market Bulletin #12017-11-01

    In September 2017, retail prices of most monitored food commodities showed an upward trend as compared to last month and 3 months earlier. This increase is mainly due to the lean season effect for most monitored crops, and the partial obstruction of road access and transportation services caused by monsoon-induced floods and landslides.
    Rural and remote markets reported relatively higher increase in food prices, and more limited or insufficient food stocks than main markets.
