    Reducing food insecurity, vulnerability and malnutrition is central to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the World Food Summit targets. FAO is technically assisting national governments and related stakeholders to better plan, target and monitor food security and programmes, and progress is continuously being made in addressing problems of hunger and malnutrition. FAO’s food insecurity and vulnerability information and mapping systems, commonly known as FIVIMS, i nclude the networks of national information systems that assemble, analyse and disseminate data on food insecurity and vulnerability. At the international level FIVIMS implements diverse activities in support of national information systems for them to become part of an international information exchange network, and at the country level FIVIMS works with a network of information systems that gather and analyze relevant national and subnational data that measure food insecurity and vulnerabilit y. The Asia Pacific Network for Food and Nutrition, in collaboration with the Asia FIVIMS project, has undertaken an important initiative through this regional expert consultation and meeting to review food insecurity and vulnerability assessment methodologies used in selected countries of the Asian region. This report provides a summary of the presentations and discussions on FIVIMS methodologies and an update on country FIVIMS activities.
