Implementation process

The IPC has been introduced in 2007 and used since 2008 to classify the food security situation at national level. The acute analysis is led four times a year, at the national and state levels. The version 2.0 has been introduced in 2012 and over 120 persons have been trained on IPC protocols in the ten states, improving their overall knowledge on food security and nutrition.  

The IPC contribution to decision making

IPC is institutionalized and adopted by the Government as a reliable tool for early warning and decision making. IPC products are used regularly for response analysis and coordination by FAO, WFP Government and other humanitarian NGOs, especially to target food aid (by WFP), seeds and tools distribution (by FAO).

IPC products feed into the weekly bulletin edited by the Food security Livelihoods Cluster and UNOCHA and it was included in the Humanitarian appeal in October 2012. 

The Partnership and role of Government

IPC is hosted within the National Bureau of Statistics and the chair of the technical working group (TWG) is in the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Cooperatives and Rural Development. The national TWG is composed of 15 members from different ministries of the government, UN agencies and NGOs.

The national TWG continues working towards

  • Building strong relations with high state authorities will facilitate the full IPC ownership by the Government and all decision makers
  • Increase the quality of the analysis by advocating to fill the data availability and quality gaps via line Ministries and National Bureau of statistics and by continued capacity building
  • Chronic food insecurity analysis for orienting long term food security response.
