MadagascarIn March 2016, WFP Madagascar started remote phone-based data collection for food security monitoring using the mobile Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping (mmVAM) approach. Survey respondents were contacted via text message (SMS) and asked to respond to a short series of questions on food prices, household food consumption, and negative coping strategies. In March 2017, WFP Madagascar also started reaching out to traders in the south of the country via live calls, asking questions about the prices of the most commonly consumed food products and any challenges they faced.
