IPC Chronic Pilot in Kenya - Chronic Food Insecurity Training and Analysis, Sept. 2013

23/09/2013 - 27/09/2013
2nd Round of IPC Chronic Food Insecurity Classification Pilots

The Kenya pilot was the first pilot of the second round of piloting, which includes four countries: Kenya, Bangladesh, Malawi/Zimbabwe, and Guatemala. The draft tools tested in Kenya were developed by the IPC Working Group for Classifying Chronic Food Insecurity.

The working group developed the new tools on basis of the results of the first round of piloting conducted between September 2012 and February 2013, and the discussions that started in the first synthesis meeting of the chronic working group in Washington in March 2013 and continued up to and beyond the second synthesis meeting in Rome in May 2013.

The Kenya pilot workshop took place in Kitui Cottages & Guest House in Kitui town from 23 to 27 September. There were approximately 20 workshop participants, and 4-5 workshop facilitators. 

The Kenya pilot provided many useful lessons learnt and recommendations for future pilots and further development of the chronic food insecurity analysis tools and procedures. It is pertinent to ensure that the lessons learnt and recommendations are taken into consideration in the preparation for the upcoming pilots, and that the testing of the same tools is carried out in order to ensure comparability of results and experiences for further development of the IPC chronic food insecurity analysis.
