CH contribution to the IPC Chronic and Nutrition developments: IPC GSU participation in CH country and regional analyses

IPC and CILSS keep working together in the development and  harmonization of IPC and Cadre Harmonisé (CH) tools and procedures. The latest landmark in the collaboration between CILSS Agrhymet and IPC GSU is represented by the active participation of CILSS in the latest IPC-Chronic Lessons Learning Workshop and in the IPC Nutrition Working Group Meeting (see p.2), through the newly appointed Agrhymet Nutrition Expert and the CH Expert and Analyst in the IPC Nutrition Working Group.

At the same time, in the context of the CH Country Analyses conducted in 13 countries in February-March 2015 (Cape Verde, the Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Benin, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, Chad), the IPC GSU supported the analysis in Ivory Coast on 9-13 March 2015, through the active participation of the IPC Technical Support Officer for East and Central Africa - Francophone countries.

As next step, the IPC Regional Advisor for West Africa will participate in CH Technical Committee which will meet in Nouakchott from 27 to 30 March 2015. The aim of the meeting is to review CH results at country level and compile the CH Regional Map.

The Regional Map will also include the results of the CH Analysis completed in the Ebola-hit countries: Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Given the challenges in conducting the analyses in-country, the CH Analysis for Ebola countries was conducted at the regional level by CH regional analysts and country experts, who met in Dakar in February. Results of the Regional Analysis will inform PREGEC discussions that will be held on 1-3 April 2015.
