IPC ALERT: Central African Republic calls for Immediate Actions to Avoid a Worsening Emergency Situation

A worsening emergency situation threatens CAR populations, as indicated by the results of the IPC analysis conducted in April 2014 by the IPC national partners.

Urgent action is required now to protect and save livelihoods and lives, and to prevent further deterioration of the situation as the peak of the lean season will soon be reached in July.

It is imperative to remedy the gaps in data in order to update the analysis with greater level of confidence as soon as possible. >> Read more

IPC in Central African Republic

The IPC has been introduced in 2008, with irregularity in the implementation because of the lack of financial support.

The TWG counts 30 permanent members who have been trained on food security and livelihood concepts and IPC protocols.

The IPC V2.0 has been introduced in May 2012, all the members of the TWG have been trained and two acute analysis workshops have been led.

The IPC contribution to decision making

The IPC has allowed to identify gaps in the reliability of data and information, and could guide the development of an information system. The IPC classification is used in particular for emergency response to prioritize and focus on the regions classified in IPC emergency (phase 4) and crisis (phase 3) phases. 

IPC products are now on the tables of strategic decisions: the Accelerated Framework of Millennium Goals, the National Program for Agricultural Investment and Food Security country program and the Common Appeal Program (CAP) developed in 2012 have been oriented by IPC products. 

The Partnership and role of Government

The IPC is hosted within the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development with technical and Secretariat support from FAO. The national TWG counts around 30 members from Government departments (Statistics Institute/ICASEES, Agriculture and Rural Development, Social Affairs, Environment, Plan and International Cooperation, Public Buildings and Urban, Mines-Energy and Hydraulics, Water-Forests-Hunting and Fishing), UN agencies (FAO, WFP, UNSIDA, OCHA, HCR), NGOs (ACF, TRIANGLE, G-H, DRC, CRS, CHOEB) and Academics (University of Bangui).

The IPC in Central African Republic has received direct financial support from AusAid, and financial and technical support through the regional and global levels.

The national TWG continues working towards

• Improving the ownership by the Government and other national decision makers through more awareness
• Strengthening the acute food insecurity analysis by building capacity and advocating to increase the reliability of the data
• Conducting chronic food insecurity analysis
