Relevance of IPC for Decision Making in Non-Crisis and Developmental Contexts

Concept Note prepared by the IPC Global Support Unit, August 2010, updated October 2012

While the IPC was originally developed in a complex emergency context, its expanded usage is often in non-crisis and developmental contexts, which has provoked  demand for clearer explanation of how it is relevant in these contexts.

This paper aims to explain: 1) why the IPC is relevant in both crisis and non‐crisis/developmental contexts, and (2) how the IPC does this as per its new Version 2.0. These issues are important to clarify for both users and advocates of the IPC as well as potential donors who may be interested in broadening the funding base of the IPC beyond emergency, short term funding.
