Food Security and Market Monitoring System in Armenia – April 2021

Author: WFP Armenia
In February-March 2021, WFP launched the remote food security monitoring system (mVAM) in Armenia amidst COVID-19 and the conflict in the adjoining region of Nagorno-Karabakh (NK) to assess how those shocks have impacted the food security of the displaced population and hosting families.

COVID-19 had significant implications on the food and nutrition security situation and poverty in Armenia. This was further exacerbated when the conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh (NK) region broke out in September and October of 2020, causing damage and destruction of both public and private property, as well as a mass movement of people on both sides.
