he Famine Monitoring System (FMS) is an approach put in place by the Food Security Sector and Nutrition Sector (both having their operational bases in the North East) under the leadership of the Nigerian Government, for tracking the trend of acute food and nutrition security situation in such areas that had been analyzed to be in the emergency (phase 4) so as to be able to develop and issue an alert in case famine emerges. The FMS uses a methodology that combines both food and nutrition security monitoring strategies to assess the situation and then raise necessary alert, as the case may be. The FMS is basically conceptualized to support the Cadre Harmonisé analysis of the inaccessible areas in the BAY States.
The general objective of FMS is to provide a comprehensive information about the food security and nutritional situation of the population in inaccessible areas of Northeast BAY States. The FMS will also inform the upcoming October, 2021 Cadre Harmonisé analysis and classification in different phases of food security and malnutrition of these areas.
