In 2009 the World Food Programme (WFP) in Nepal (Hobbs 2009) published a report entitled ‘The cost of coping: a collision of crises and the impact of sustained food security deterioration in Nepal’. The report argued that Nepal had experienced ‘a sharp and sustained decline in food security’ (Hobbs 2009: 2) leading to levels of food insecurity and nutritional deprivation that were the worst in Asia and were more comparable to the levels to be found in certain sub-Saharan African countries.
