The IPC Global Partners launched the IPC Global Strategic Programme and Vision (2014-2016), through an online virtual event scheduled for Thursday, February 27, 2014, from 10:00 to 12:00am, (UTC+01:00) Central European time zone.
Following the IPC Special Partners and Donors Meeting hold on 4 October 2013, the IPC Global Strategic Programme and Vision (2014-2016) has been finalized and it is now endorsed by the IPC core implementing partners at Global and Regional Level.
The IPC Global Strategic Programme (2014-2016) is the result of a multi-partner consultative process carried out by the IPC Global Partnership with IPC Stakeholders, including National Governments, Regional inter-Governmental Bodies, UN Agencies, International Agencies, NGO’s, and donors IPC Stakeholders in Africa, Asia, and Central America, and at the global level. It is derived from and reflects country, regional and global strategies and priorities.
The development of such Global Strategic Programme was necessary to consolidate the achievements and learning of the past few years, to be able to more effectively respond to the increasing demand for IPC worldwide, and to adequately support the IPC as an international global standard in food security field. Indeed, the Programme aims to be results-based, reflective of the needs at the country, regional and global level and serves to create a common and shared vision for how the IPC is rolled out over the next 3 years. This shift in approach reflects the transition from a phase of technical development to a process of institutionalization and professionalization of IPC that would see all stakeholders engaged in a multi-donor and multi-level funding mechanism with multiple entry points for donor, government and partner co-funding.
At the Launch, IPC Partner Agencies and Regional Inter-governmental Bodies presented the longer-term breakthrough approach to IPC rollout and implementation in 2014-2016.
Live presenations focused on the top priorities of the IPC Global Strategic Programme are: IPC Institutionalization and Partnership at all levels; Consolidated and expanded capacity in IPC Acute Food Insecurity Analysis; Rollout of the IPC versions 1.0 Chronic Food Insecurity Classification; Piloting of the IPC version 1.0 of the Nutrition Classification; IPC Quality Review and Compliance Process; and, as ultimate goal, uptake of IPC analysis into decision-making and response analysis process.
