DEVEX has released an interview with WFP’s Chief Economist Arif about what mobile technology can offer food security monitoring. Husain is head of the Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping department, which boasts a network of 150 food security analysts in more than 70 countries, tasked with gathering “actionable food security information”. In 2012, the organization piloted mobile Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping (mVAM), in the Democratic Republic of Congo, to collect food security data remotely.
