Description

The May 2015 Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) report is the first detailed food security and nutritional analysis report produced by the South Sudan Integrated Food Security Classification Technical Working Group (IPC TWG) in the year 2015.

 

The IPC process which started with state level IPC analyses in the seven states of Eastern Equatoria, Western Equatoria, Lakes, Warrap, Western Bahr el Ghazal, Northern Bahr el Ghazal and Jonglei State in mid-April, was followed by a 12-day national-level analysis workshop in Nimule from 21st April to 3rd of May.

 

The Nimule workshop was open to other Food Security and Livelihoods Cluster members who are not directly involved in the IPC but had some information and analysis to contribute. More than 90 participants from more than over 25 state and central government ministries, UN agencies, and NGOs attended the workshop.

 

On 17th May, the IPC TWG presented the draft report for technical validation to the RFSSFSC Secretary General, Undersecretary for Agriculture and a team of technical participants from more than five government ministries and agencies. On the 27th May the Minister of Agriculture, in his capacity as the Secretary of the RSSFSC, publicly endorsed the IPC results in a press release followed by a press conference.
