Food Security Bulletin No.05

As the Food Security Bulletin 4 anticipated, good maize and potato yields look set to offset the adverse food security implications of last reporting cycle’s reduced winter crop of wheat and barley. Additionally, most of the paddy-growing districts that WFP monitors expect the end-of-the-year rice crop to be satisfactory.

Furthermore, with the exception of district headquarters that continue to be affected by CPN(M) imposed blockades, market prices for foodstuffs and other basic commodities are at levels comparable to last year.

Hence, this reporting cycle did not show up evidence of a general deterioration in food security in the districts and VDCs where WFP Monitors work.
