In January 2016, WFP started remote phone-based data collection and food security monitoring in Nigeria through the mVAM (mobile Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping) approach. Survey respondents are contacted via live calls and asked to respond to a short series of questions on household food consumption, coping and food prices, as well as an open ended question on the food security situation in their community.
