This resulted in 20-30% of the population in these districts experiencing high levels of acutefood insecurity, including school children. The National Food Security Division – Ministry of Agriculture and Disaster Management Department-Prime Minister Office conducted amulti-sectoral assessment report that revealed low food production and projected price surges, which negatively affected food access.
