What does FIVIMS mean?
Food Insecurity and Vulnerability Information and Mapping Systems (FIVIMS) is a global system supported by Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), that aims to assist countries with strengthening their information systems for the assessment and monitoring of food insecurity and malnutrition situations. FIVIMS assembles, analyses and disseminates information about people who are food-insecure or vulnerable to food insecurity: who they are, where they are located, and why they are food-insecure or vulnerable to food insecurity.
