ZimbabweIn June 2016, WFP Zimbabwe started remote phone-based data collection and food security monitoring using the mobile Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping (mVAM) approach. Survey respondents were contacted through an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system and an in-house call center. Respondents were asked a short series of questions on coping strategies used, prices of main food commodities, and their perception of the food security situation in their community. In August 2016, WFP switched from using IVR to text messages (SMS) for collecting household food security data.
