The IPC Global Strategic Programme (GSP) 2014-2018 is a multi-year and results-based management approach to consolidate the achievements and learning of the past few years, to be able to respond to the increasing demand for IPC worldwide, and to adequately support the IPC as an international global standard in the food security field.
This Global Strategic Programme (GSP) 2014-2018 was developed and informed through a multi-partner consultative process launched in 2013, which involved IPC stakeholders, including National Governments, Regional inter-Governmental Bodies, UN Agencies, International Agencies, NGOs, and donors IPC stakeholders in Africa, Asia, Central America, and at the global level. This Strategic Programme is derived from and reflects country, regional and global strategies and priorities.
Key aspects of the IPC GSP (2014-2018) are:
- An overarching shared vision for the IPC to reflect and encompass country, regional and global strategic priorities to be achieved in the five years period;
- A results-based programme defined at the outcome, output and activity levels, and with indicators for monitoring the impact;
- Identification of common strategies and outcomes on IPC governance and institutionalization, capacity building, technical developments and improving uptake and use of IPC products;
- Interlinked work plans at the global and regional levels, in support of country IPC implementation and achievement of outcomes;
- Multi-donor and multi-level funding mechanism with multiple entry points at global, regional and country levels for donor, government and partner co-funding.
The IPC GSP (2014-2018) will be guided by the IPC Global Strategic Partnership, a multi-partner governing and implementing structures which coordinate the IPC development and implementation at three levels: Global, Regional and National.
The overall strategic objective and vision of the IPC GSP (2014-2018) is to provide evidence and standards for better decisions that improve emergency and development policy and programming, contributing to global food and nutrition security.
