Nepal earthquake

May 2015

FAO has warned that the impact on food security and agricultural livelihoods in Nepal is expected to be very high as the earthquake struck during the wheat harvest, with rice planting just one month away. Daniele Donati is the Deputy Director of FAO’s Emergency Division. He has more details on what the focus of relief work will be in the weeks and months ahead, and why further funding to meet the needs of those caught in the crisis area is critical.
