Market Watch 6

Districts in the Mid- and Far-Western Hills and Mountains continue to face severe problems of food insecurity due to high food prices, natural disasters and hindered access to markets. On the positive side, the recent maize harvest has decreased maize prices substantially.

Food prices have continued to rise and in some parts have been further affected by the closure of the East-West highway in the Eastern and Far-Western Terai, the Karnali highway and the Dhangadhi – Dadeldhura highway due to floods and landslides.

With the festive season of Dashain approaching, food prices traditionally go up. However, prices are already at very high levels which will further affect the poor.
