Nepal earthquakes - Agricultural Livelihood Impact Appraisal

Jul 2015

In order to understand the impact of the earthquakes in Nepal and associated aftershocks on agriculture in the most severely affected districts, an Agricultural Livelihood Impact Appraisal (ALIA) was undertaken. The ALIA was a Nepal Food Security Cluster exercise led by FAO.

The study confirms that agricultural livelihoods in the six districts suffered particularly high levels of damage, and therefore support to livelihoods in these districts should be prioritised in agricultural recovery programmes.
