Nepal: Floods, landslides hit food stocks

Published on 22 October 2009

Food insecurity has increased for thousands of families in Nepal’s far- and mid-west regions as a result of flooding and landslides earlier this month.(..) “Some of the affected districts are already among the most chronically food insecure areas - where people grow their crops largely for subsistence. And when they lose them, they don’t have anything,” Richard Ragan, country representative of the World Food Programme (WFP) in Nepal, told IRIN.
