IPC in Djibouti

Implementation process

The IPC has been introduced at the very end of 2011, and two acute food insecurity analyses have been conducted with the version 2.0, the first in December 2011 and the second in October 2012.

The Technical Working Group (TWG) counts around 40 permanent members who have been trained on food security and livelihood concepts and IPC protocols.

The awareness raised on the IPC and the release of the first IPC products have brought more interest on food security among decision makers.

The IPC contribution to decision making

The IPC products have shown the impact of the drought persisting since 2008 and orient the rehabilitation programs to the most affected areas, in particular the pastoralist livelihood zones.

Thanks to the first IPC analysis, the critical food insecurity situation of Obock has been informed and Government took much attention to it.

The Partnership and role of Government

The IPC is hosted in the Ministry of Agriculture with technical and Secretariat support from FAO.

The national TWG counts around 40 members from governmental departments, UN agencies and NGOs. Ten of them constitute the steering committee, composed by Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Interior, FAO, WFP, FEWSNET and ACF.

The IPC in Djibouti has received direct financial support from ECHO, as well as 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
  • As 75% of the total population live in urban area, the urban food insecurity analysis is strongly requested
  • Conducting chronic food insecurity analysis
