Implementation process

The IPC has been introduced in 2007 and the acute food insecurity analysis is conducted twice a year. The 8th  analysis has been conducted in October 2012. The Version 2.0 has been introduced in July 2012 and 45 members of the TWG have been trained. The Version 2.0 has increased the technical rigour of the analysis compared to Version 1.1.

The IPC contribution to decision making

IPC is now the decision making reference for the Government, Humanitarian
community and for other actors: the annual “Humanitarian Plan” refers to IPC
products. The two last IPC analyses (July and October 2012) have highlighted the impact of civil insecurity on the food security situation, as most of the affected areas have been classified in phase 4 (Emergency). After the events that took place in the Kivus in November 2012, a prompt update of the analysis has been called for these provinces to assess the impact on the food security situation.

The Pool Fund 2012 identified height projects thanks to the IPC and the priority was given to the areas and households in the highest IPC phases (Phase 4: Emergency, and then Phase 3: Crisis).

The Partnership and role of Government

The IPC is hosted in the National Department of Statistics, Ministry of Agriculture with technical and Secretariat support from FAO. The national TWG counts around 45 members from Government (Agriculture, Health and Plan), UN agencies (FAO, WFP, UNICEF, OCHA), national and international NGOs.

The data used in the acute analysis comes mainly from WFP food security monitoring system (FSMS), the Early Warning System (PRONANUT, UNICEF, PAM, FAO), Health statistics and ad-hoc assessments.

The national TWG continues working towards

  • Full ownership by the Government and financial sustainability of the process
  • Building capacity, with the IPC level 2 training for members of the national TWG and representatives of provinces
  • Improving the Early Warning component by refining the analysis of the projected situation 
  • Conducting chronic food insecurity analysis
