Food Security Bulletin No.20

Over the period May – July 2008, the number of people highly and/or severely food insecure has increased due to poor winter harvests in parts of the Far- and Mid-west, rise in food prices and transportation costs, market closures due to syndicate strikes and inaccessibility of areas due to monsoon weather conditions.

ƒThe WFP/NDRI market assessment (see box 1) identified 2.5 million rural people across Nepal in need of food support due to rising food prices. More than half of those (1.3 million) have currently been classified as highly to severely food insecure in the 39 FSMAS monitoring districts.
