NEPAL’S HUMLA RESIDENT STRUGGLE WITH HUNGER

Labels:
The people in Humla district in northwestern Nepal have suffered food shortages since the 1970s.
The region perched at an altitude of 2,910 metres in the Himalayas bordering the Tibetan Autonomous Region produces little food to support the local population. The annual demand for food is 9,823 metric tonne, but Humla was able to produce only 1,462 metric tonne during 2011-2012, according to Nepal's government.
The South Asian country's effort to provide food to Humla, one of the most isolated regions in the world, has done more harm than good to the local dwellers.
Many people blame the ongoing issues on the destruction of the residents' traditional way of life. 
Al Jazeera's Subina Shrestha reports.
