The State of Hunger in Nepal
As a result of long-term political instability and conflicts, Nepal faces a range of development and humanitarian challenges – from endemic poverty to widespread undernutrition.
One-third of the Nepalese population lives below the poverty line. To survive, most families depend on farming, a precarious livelihood in Nepal. Surrounded by the Himalayas, the country is vulnerable to natural disasters, including frequent floods, earthquakes, storms, avalanches, and landslides.
