Food security is significant issue for development programming given this is a basic need that impacts survival, growth and development of human being.. As 49% of the households in Nepal are food insecure (National Demographic and Health Survey: NDSH, 2011), it is very important to explore how households in the rural communities are coping with food insecurity situation and discuss about the way out. Disasters, climate change effects on production, exploitative economic systems, growing distraction of youth from agriculture are some significant issues that are likely to intensify the risks for food security in future. Food insecurity further puts households and communities vulnerable to disasters and weakens their capacity to restore to the normal life.
