IPC in Latin America & Caribbean

Since 2010, the IPC approach has been presented to stakeholders in several countries of the Central American region through a number of informative sessions and meetings.

The roll-out of the IPC in Central America is part of a global process facilitated by the IPC Global Steering Committee and the IPC Global Support Unit and is motivated by the commitment to:

  • improve effectiveness and efficiency of crisis response;
  • strengthen mechanisms for disaster preparedness and risk reduction in food security

In Honduras, during May 2010, the WFP provided training on IPC version 1.1 to a number of participants from different organizations, including the Government, and led an IPC pilot analysis at the national level.

After this exercise, all participating stakeholders agreed on the relevance that IPC for improved decision making. Consensus was reached among stakeholders on the need for further trial of the IPC protocol through pilot analyses at department or municipality level. In the course of 2012, IPC version 2.0 is being piloted in four countries (Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala) at sub-national level.

Until September 2014 there have been IPC Level 1 Trainings in El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua. Acute analysis have taken place in all the countries except Nicaragua, although these analysis are done on a regular basis only in Haiti and Honduras.
