Le système de suivi de la sécurité alimentaire (FSMS) permet de mesurer l'évolution de la situation socioéconomique afin d’identifier et de suivre les menaces potentielles sur la sécurité alimentaire des populations. Ce système permet aussi d’informer les décideurs sur le choix des actions à entreprendre dans la lutte contre l’insécurité alimentaire des populations en fournissant des informations saisonnières d’évolution de la situation dans le pays.
La collecte des données concerne 10 strates couvrant l’ensemble du pays. Hormis les quatre wilayas du nord (Adrar, Tiris Zemmour, Inchiri et Nouadhibou) qui ont été regroupées en une seule strate, les autres willayas et Nouakchott constituent chacune une strate. Dans chaque strate, l’échantillon est représentatif du milieu urbain et rural de la strate. Ainsi, le milieu urbain concerne aussi bien Nouakchott, les villes du nord (Nouadhibou, Atar, Zouérate) que les capitales régionales et départementales des autres régions. Les données de la présente enquête FSMS ont été collectées entre le 24 décembre 2012 au 12 janvier 2013. Au total 3 207 ménages urbains et ruraux ont été interrogés. Les principaux indicateurs suivis sont la consommation alimentaire (FCS), les stratégies de survies (CSI "réduit") et l’évolution des termes de l’échange (ToT).

The 2011 rainy season was characterized by a poor distribution of rainfall over space and time resulting in low pasture growth and the failure of rain-fed crops. To have a clearer picture of the impact of the rainfall deficient and high food prices on populations, the Food Security Commission (CSA) and WFP organized a new round of data collection of its monitoring of household food security commonly called FSMS (Food Security Monitoring System). This survey was conducted in the period of the year when the food situation has usually stabilized (post-harvest period).
