Foundation of IPC implementation

Rwanda has been participating in IPC regional consultations and trainings since 2007 and has been represented by two government institutions: the Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Resources and the Ministry of Health, and three non governmental agencies: WFP, FAO, and FEWSNET Rwanda.

Potential information to be used in IPC exists and can be compiled from : i) Comprehensive Food Security and Vulnerability Analysis, ii) Food and Nutrition Security Monitoring System, iii) Integrated Household Living Conditions Survey, iv) Demographic Health Survey, v) Crop Assessment Survey.
