District Food Security Network Bulletin-mid Jul -mid Nov 2013

The DFSN divided the district in six clusters (A, B, C, D, E and F) based on the cropping patterns, livelihood strategies and market access. Ward-level analysis was done for 12 VDCs in the south, and ward-level clusters (E and F) were created to allow for greater scrutiny. Cluster E is largely inhabited by ethnic groups, like Chepangs and Tamangs, and small holders, who rely on cereal (maize and millet) production from marginal land, selling of bamboo products and daily wage labour for sustenance. In Cluster F, which is dominated by Brahmins and Chhetris, cereal production (paddy, maize) leads to 9-10 months of food self-sufficiency and greater income is also available through the sale of vegetables and livestock products.
