Surveys for Food Security and Agriculture

Remotely Monitor Changes in Food Security and Agriculture Conditions

Remote mobile surveys can collect multiple types of food security data, including food prices, market operability status, crop harvest data, and frequency of meal consumption. The granular data collected through mobile methods can be used for emergency assessments, ongoing monitoring, and one-off analyses of specific areas or populations.

GeoPoll is an expert in collecting food security and agricultural data via remote surveys: In 2013 we pioneered the use of text message surveys for food security data collection with the World Food Programme, when we successfully adapted food security indicators for remote mobile surveys in the Democratic Republic of Congo during a time of conflict. Since then GeoPoll has completed many food security and agriculture research projects with partners including global organizations, local NGOs, and governments.
