WFP's Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping (WFP/VAM)

WFP's Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping (WFP/VAM) is network of food security experts who work closely with national governments, UN partners and NGOs to inform food insecurity and hunger related programmes and policies. Over 150 analysts in food insecure countries conduct a wide range of assessments, analysis and monitoring in order to identify hungry and food insecure populations and to establish the underlying causes. VAM is strong in household data collection and food security analysis. It provides training on food security assessment and analysis methods and offers related online learning materials.
