Nepal: Thematic Report on Food Security and Nutrition 2013


The Nepal Thematic Report on Food Security and Nutrition 2013, updates the status of food security and nutrition in Nepal, and analyzes key food security trends over the past 15 years. This report is based primarily on the findings of the Nepal Living Standards Survey (NLSS) 2010/11, which covered 5,988 households and included anthropometric data collected from approximately 2,500 preschool children under 60 months of age. The 2010/11 NLSS is the third of its kind in Nepal (following surveys undertaken in 1995/96 and 2003/04) and represents a comprehensive and reliable source of information on the status of national and regional food security and the nutritional status of the population.
