IPC Emergency Review Committee (ERC) Report: South Sudan - June 2014

Conclusions and Recommendations on the South Sudan Preliminary IPC Country Results

Due to the worsening food and nutrition security situation in South Sudan, combined with the sensitivity and varying degrees of consensus on the situation analysis, the Government of South Sudan, the South Sudan IPC Technical Working Group (SS IPC TWG) and Humanitarian Agencies operating in South Sudan requested the activation of an IPC Global Emergency Review Committee (ERC).

The ERC activation represents an additional quality assurance and validation step for the IPC Country Team before they finalize and release their IPC results. The South Sudan IPC ERC was chaired by the IPC Global Support Unit and consisted of four international leading technical food security and nutrition experts. The IPC ERC reviewed the South Sudan IPC Technical Working Group IPC analysis and findings and held consultations with all key major stakeholders, including the South Sudan IPC TWG and Humanitarian agencies working in South Sudan. This report represents the findings of the IPC ERC.
