Food Security Bulletin No.03

This bulletin reviews general food security related issues in the current context of Nepal in the 32 WFP programme districts from mid March to mid May, 2004. Observations are based on quantitative and qualitative field data, and anecdotal information, systematicallycollected since the end of 2002.

For the first time, data collection by WFP field monitors was significantly affected by the security situation. The Maoist imposed blockades in various parts of the country meant that some 30% of the fixed WFP sample communities could not be visited in this reporting cycle although some degree of movement was possible in all programme districts at some time during the reporting cycle. The mid and far western districts were more affected than those in the central and eastern regions.
