  • District Food Security Report July-Nov 20132014-03-18

    A majority of households are consuming cereals and pulses (bread and beans) as traditional food habits, but food consumption is not diversified. The District Health Office (DHO) record suggests the prevalence of acute malnutrition to be 10-18% in the district; however, this information is based on reported cases of sick children accessing health services, so it is not representative of the general population. The DHO reports that the main reasons for high level of acute malnutrition are poor sanitation and hygiene (mainly non-food security specific factors). Livelihood strategies have remained stable in the VDCs in Cluster A and B; however, the situation has deteriorated in six VDCs in Cluster C (Haku, Tatopani, Lamra, Talium, Kudari, and RaraLihi), which has pushed this area into the moderately food insecure phase (Phase 2).
