Food Security and Humanitarian Monitoring

AIR conducts food security monitoring in some of the world’s most vulnerable locations.

Working in highly insecure environments, AIR’s field-based researchers and data collection teams gathered primary data from panel surveys of households, markets, and health centers. Using tablets and satellite telephones, AIR provided decisionmakers with near real-time information on humanitarian conditions, food availability, and population movements.

AIR's cutting-edge methodological approach in collecting detailed information allowed decisionmakers to better understand humanitarian conditions and design programs to best respond to immediate needs.
