training Ongoing course World Food Programme

Collecting primary data on households’ food security can be challenging, time consuming and costly ‒ particularly in areas with limited humanitarian access. Remote data collection is a flexible and efficient way to collect food security information and it allows for frequent food security monitoring in unstable areas without putting the enumerators at risk.

This course aims to give a clear understanding of what remote food security monitoring entails, when it is a useful tool, and how to implement a remote food security monitoring project.
