Of this, £34,000 is currently being used by the World Food Programme (WFP) to buy and distribute emergency seed supplies to affected areas. £30,000 will be used to support a detailed food assessment by Government of Nepal and UN agencies in November. The remaining £236,000 will be spent on food aid in accordance with the recommendations of that food assessment and as agreed with OCHA.
