Food and nutrition security in Nepal: a status report
This report on Nepal‘s food and nutrition security is one of the three main outputs of an analytical and capacity building regional project coordinated by the FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific. Besides Nepal, the project is also implemented in Bangladesh, Myanmar, Lao PDR, the Philippines and Timor-Leste. The main objective of the project is to strengthen national capacity for generating quality indicators of food and nutrition security (FNS) and analyzing them for improving policies and programmes. The project was a response by FAO to requests made by Member countries at the 31st Asia Pacific Regional Conference (APRC) in 2012 for the provision of technical assistance in strengthening national FNS information systems.
