Register for Foodathon #HacktheHunger

Nepal has 30 lakh hectares of fertile land. 3.8 million Families are engaged in agriculture. Still we rely on food imports. Nepal imported agricultural goods worth more than Rs 220 billion last fiscal year. With the breakdown in the supply chain, and increasing reliance on imports, prices of daily essentials have already begun to rise in the market. Nepal imported vegetables worth Rs 4 billion during the period of this lockdown. Meanwhile food produced by farmers in other parts of Nepal is becoming waste. Disruptions in the supply of farming inputs like fertilizers are certain to impact food production. The travel restrictions keeping farmers at home could result in a year of hyperinflation. A food crisis is looming.
