  • NEPAL Flood _ August 2017 (V2)2017-08-29

    Nepal Food Security Monitoring System (NeKSAP) released version 1.0 of the assessment report on 21 August 2017. Version 2.0 has been updated based on results of the Initial Rapid Assessment (IRA) obtained from Nepal Red Cross Society (NRCS) and the latest field updates from NeKSAP.
    The IRA results indicate that 1.68 million people were affected by the flood in 19 Terai districts. Around 455,000 people were displaced, 63,000 houses were fully damaged and 118,000 houses were partially damaged. 40 VDCs are still not accessible by vehicle. It is estimated that more than 1.16 million people are food insecure in the affected areas and 305,000 people need food assistance on a priority basis. In priority one areas, there are approximately 203,700 children under five years of age and 90,500 pregnant or lactating women.
    Saptari, Rautahat, Mahottari, Bardiya and Banke were the most affected districts followed by Sarlahi, Siraha, Parsa and Dhanusha.

  • NEPAL Flood _ August 20172017-08-22

     Nepal was hit by the worst rains in 15 years that started on 11 August 2017. It caused severe flooding in the Terai with huge impact on livelihood, food security and nutrition due to losses in lives, assets, housing, infrastructure including water and sanitation, food stocks and agriculture production. The full impact in still unknown, but the NeKSAP estimates that more than 0.94 million people in impacted areas are currently food insecure. Almost 300,000 people or 58,300 households would need food assistance on a priority basis. Based on evidence from previous flood disasters, the risk of acute malnutrition will be hugely magnified. Prevention is therefore key. Within the indentified priority one areas, the number of children under the age of five is approximately 190,000 and there are 84,000 pregnant or lactating women.

  • ANNUAL HOUSEHOLD SURVEY 2015/162017-08-18

     Annual Household Survey 2015/16 is the forth survey of its kind. These annual surveys are conducted to provide estimations of some major socio-economic indicators on annual basis which would not be possible with other periodic surveys like Nepal Labour Force Surveys (NLSS) and Nepal Living Standard Surveys (NLSS) which are undertaken at longer intervals. The survey basically aims to provide estimates of consumption by sex, urban-rural area and by consumption quintiles/deciles. Although the major thrust of Annual Household Survey is on consumption and employment situations, other sectors like education, housing and housing facilities and demographic characteristics are also included. As this year NLSS survey is conducted so, this survey does not contain information on employment situation as in previous annual household surveys.

  • NEPAL mVAM Bulletin #12017-08-09

    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. For more information on the food security situation of these areas, please visit the website www.neksap.org.np
    To track seasonal changes over time a food security monitoring survey was started in November 2016 and repeated in June 2017.

  • The NeKSAP Food Security Monitoring Survey(Mid-Western and Far-Western Mountain)2017-06-21

    Since its inception, the Nepal Food Security Monitoring System (NeKSAP) has been regularly conducting household level food security monitoring surveys coupled with the assessment of markets to understand the overall food security situation of the country with special focus on the areas identified as food insecure by the NeKSAP. The findings from the survey are incorporated into the food security bulletins produced by the NeKSAP.
    As part of ongoing monitoring of food security situation at the household level, the NeKSAP household survey focusing on midwestern and far-western mountain regions of Nepal was conducted on November 2016 as a joint collaboration between the Ministry of Agriculture Development (MoAD) and the World Food Programme, Nepal. The survey collected information on various topics such as household livelihoods, availability and consumption of food, expenditures, access to markets and other essential services as well as coping strategies.

  • The Cost of Coping August 20092009-08-28

    Nepal has experienced a sharp and sustained decline in food security. Like many countries in the world, Nepal has been hit by a collision of crises, the intertwining effects of: the World Food Crisis, the International Economic Crisis, and the Global Climate Change Crisis. These crises come on top of serious domestic food challenges, including a domestic food production crisis, high rates of poverty, 10 years of recent civil conflict and ongoing political instability. Compared to neighboring countries, and indeed countries around the world, Nepal’s food security situation has suffered considerably over the past 3 years. WFP estimates that:

    2008 was a year marked by unprecedented food price increases across the country. At peak prices, rice increased by 24 percent, oil by 30 percent, wheat flour by 18 percent, and musuro (lentil) by 40percent compared to last year.

    The major causes of price increase during 2008 include: high reliance on imports during a year of rapidly rising global food prices, the 2007 Indian export ban on key food commodities, high transportation costs, reduced road access caused by natural disasters, civil unrest, and poor base stocks of food.

    Domestic cost drivers resulted in particularly high food prices,year-on-year food and beverage inflation in Nepal was approximately 17 percent, compared to approximately 10 percent food inflation in India.

  • Market and Price Impact Assessment Nepal2008-07-10

    • Approximately 2.5 million people in rural Nepal are in immediate need of food assistance. These people are highly vulnerable to food price increases and already have very low food intake levels.
    • An additional 3.9 million people in rural Nepal are at risk of becoming food insecure due to increasing food prices.
    • In urban areas 525,000 vulnerable poor are at risk. The total of 67,000 people may require immediate emergency support. This is best done through providing targeted subsidized food programmes with limited duration or through a non-food based response. The remaining 458,000 people need to be carefully monitored in case further price increases have a broader impact.

  • Inter Agency Rapid Flood Assessment2007-08-15

    Heavy rain for a period of two weeks caused major flooding in the Terai at the end of July. In mid-August, a second period of rain resulted in renewed flooding in many areas. By the end of August most flood water had receded and areas were accessible again, however continued rain since then may cause further flooding and hardship for poor Terai communities. Flooding is a recurrent problem during the monsoon period in the plains of Nepal and there is an urgent need for a longer-term solution to mitigate the impact of flood water in the these districts through river training programmes, river drainage, embankments, building of higher shelter houses and disaster preparedness programmes for the most vulnerable areas.
