Description

Central America and the Caribbean is the latest region where the IPC is being introduced. The process of introducing the IPC started with 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 IPC initiative in this region is now overseen, since April 2013, by a multi-agency IPC Regional Technical Working Group, consisting of representatives of the participating agencies and IPC partners. The IPC Regional Technical Working Group is currently working on the development of an IPC Regional Strategic Programme (2014-2016) that is linked to the IPC Global Strategic Programme (2014-2016) and will set the priorities, objectives and plans for IPC activities in the region over the next three years.
