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.

This GSP (2014-2018) was developed and informed through a multi-partner consultative process launched in 2013, which involved IPC stakeholders in Africa, Asia, Central America, and at the global level, including: national Governments, regional inter-Governmental Bodies, UN Agencies, international agencies, NGOs, and donors.

The strategic programme focuses on the four areas described below.

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.
