ZIMBABWE

Zimbabwe

In June 2016, WFP started remote phone-based data collection and food security monitoring in Zimbabwe through the mVAM (mobile Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping) approach. Survey respondents are contacted through an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system and an in-house call centre. Respondents are asked a short series of questions on coping strategies used, prices of main food commodities, and their perception on the food security situation in their community.
