GUINEA, LIBERIA, SIERRA LEONE

In September 2014, WFP started conducting remote food security surveys in the Ebola-affected countries of Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia through mobile phone surveys. The mVAM (mobile Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping) text message (SMS) and interactive voice response (IVR) surveys are sent to a panel of households in the Ebola-affected areas of each country. Respondents are asked to respond to a short series of questions on coping strategies used, food availability and prices.
