To collect, manage and analyze data, they use advanced technologies such as satellite imagery, eographic Information Systems (GIS) and mobile data collection platforms such as smart phones, tablets and Personal Digital Assistants.  Some actors for instance WFP, are working with partners to establish Food Security Monitoring Systems (FSMS) for continuous monitoring of food security conditions and market prices.
