Food Security Bulletin No. 35

This issue covers the period January to March 2012, and focuses on the food security updates of the Mid and the Far Western Hill and Mountain (MFWHM) districts. January-March is an agricultural lean period in Nepal. The food security situation in the MFWHM districts has deteriorated compared to the previous quarter, which is mostly within the range of seasonal fluctuation during the lean season. Exceptions were found in pocket areas of Darchula district, where five VDCs have been classified as “highly food insecure (Phase-III)”. This is mainly attributed to a low summer crop production of maize and paddy, coupled with a limited availability of wage labour opportunities.
