GLOBAL STRATEGIC PROGRAMME

The IPC Global Strategic Programme (GSP) is a multi-year and results-based management approach conceived to respond to the increasing demand for IPC worldwide and to support the IPC as an international global standard in the food security field.

The 2019-2022 GSP is the product of a series of strategic reflections that took place over the past few years.  In late 2016, the external Mid-Term Review of the IPC GSP provided strategic recommendations for IPC across the board.   In mid- 2017, a review of the FAO-EU Partnership Programmes FIRST and INFORMED, of which IPC is a major component, was conducted to assess the relevance of these initiatives for key stakeholders, identifying gaps and possible areas of improvement to ensure new priorities and demand for actionable evidence are addressed .   In October 2017, the IPC GSU convened a series of strategic planning discussions in Rome with IPC personnel from across the world, with an eye towards crafting the next strategic phase. Finally, in late 2018, the final evaluation of the IPC GSP 2014-2018, which placed use of the IPC at the centre-stage of the exercise provided recommendations for the next phase of the GSP (2019-2022).

Coordination Mechanism

At a Global Level
The IPC is managed by the IPC Global Steering Committee, a governing body tasked with strategically guiding and positioning the IPC globally and linking with relevant initiatives. The IPC Global Steering Committee has the following responsibilities: positioning the IPC in the broader international framework of food security and nutrition initiatives, promoting institutionalization within partner agencies, overseeing the IPC Global Strategic Programme Management, providing strategic guidance, ensuring global coherence and respect of IPC principles, and endorsing the IPC technical approaches, tools and guidelines. The IPC Global Steering Committee is currently composed of 13 food security and nutrition agencies (see Global Partnership below).
The Global Steering Committee oversees the work of the IPC Global Support Unit (GSU), which operationally guides the technical development, provides support and training to countries/regions, and promotes the IPC within global decision-making structures and in synergy with related initiatives.
The Technical Advisory Group (TAG) is composed of a pool of experts who provide expert advice on technical development aspects of the IPC, while the greater (virtual) 'IPC community' of practitioners and partners is also regularly consulted on a range of IPC related issues.
At a Regional Level
In most regions, the IPC is supported by Regional Support Units, composed of GSU technical focal experts, different agencies and food security advisors, closely working with existing regional food security networks or entities.
At a National Level
National IPC Technical Working Groups bring together national authorities, UN, NGOs and key food security stakeholders that are supporting the IPC and conduct IPC analysis with the support of the regional and global IPC bodies and partners.
