IPC in Central America and the Caribbean 2014

IPC Brief N.19 - June 2014

Central America and the Caribbean is the latest region where the IPC has been introduced. The IPC introduction process started in Honduras, in May 2010. Since then, IPC trainings and analyses have taken place in four other countries: Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Haiti.

In all these countries, different food security institutions and partners, including national Governments, have expressed interest in the IPC as a way to strengthen decision making related to food security. The regional inter-governmental body of Central America, Sistema de la Integración Centroamericana (SICA), through its Regional Food Security and Nutrition Programme for Central America (PRESANCA), is supporting the IPC initiative in the introduction of and training on IPC in SICA countries. SICA-PRESANCA is also playing an important role in the development and roll-out of the new IPC Chronic Food Insecurity Classification. In August 2013, SICA-PRESANCA joined as an official member of the IPC Global Steering Committee, to help strategically set the vision and direction of IPC globally.
