Version 1.0 of the IPC Chronic Food Insecurity Classification

Key Parameters, Tools and Procedures for evidence-based measurement of chronic food insecurity

After many years of use of the IPC approach to inform the need of interventions with short-term objectives to address crisis situations, the version 1.0 of the IPC Chronic Food Insecurity Classification, also abbreviated as IPC-Chronic Classification, has been developed to complement IPC Acute Food Insecurity Classification to provide invaluable information for decision makers that focus on medium and long term objectives.


It makes IPC an inclusive classification system to inform both crisis mitigation and prevention as well as structural and developmental policies and programs.
