IPC Global 2013

IPC Brief N.12

As of 2013, IPC activities have been led in more than 40 Countries throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America, and 29 countries regularly lead IPC analysis activities to help decision makers better address the hunger and food insecurity challenge.

The IPC initiative is strategically managed by the IPC Global Steering Committee (IPC GSC) composed of representatives from the IPC Global partners, currently at the number of eleven: ACF, CARE, CILSS (West Africa), EC-JRC, FAO, FEWS NET, the Global Food Security Cluster, Oxfam, Save the Children, SICA-PRESANCA and WFP. The IPC Global Support Unit (IPC GSU), reporting to the IPC Global Steering Committee, supports the implementation of the IPC through a network of IPC coordinators seconded in the regions, who are linked to Regional Governmental and partner platforms and who provide direct technical training and coordination support to Countries implementing IPC.

Learning from years of implementation in different food security contexts, the Version 2.0 of the IPC technical guidance was released in 2012 and successfully introduced in all IPC countries, leading to greater rigor and quality of products. Since then, the IPC scale has been expanded to measure chronic food insecurity in non-crisis and development contexts.

Other important focuses of the GSU have been the application of the IPC Certification system to professionalize food security analysis and build an autonomous pool of IPC analysts and facilitators in countries, as well as the development of the IPC Information Support System (ISS).
