Food Security Bulletin No.07

This monitoring cycle is the end of the major cereal harvests in Nepal, and the participants in the WFP/VAM repeat survey assess their current food stock to be greater than last year at this time. Only the flood-affected districts in the Central and Eastern Regions provide downbeat yield predictions and that has little effect on survey households because these tend to be landless and hence rely on wage laborincome rather than own production. The previous Bulletin noted that localized yield reductions in the crops harvested during Septe ber and October might impact survey household food security in subsequent cycles but the data from this cycle does not contain such indications.Accordingly, this cycle did not show up evidence of a general deterioration in food security in the districts and VDCs covered by WFP/VAM’s Food Security Monitoring.
