IPC in Latin America & Caribbean

Since 2010, the IPC approach has been presented to stakeholders in several countries of the Latin America and Caribbean region through a number of informative sessions and meetings.

The roll-out of the IPC in Latin America and Caribbean is part of a global process facilitated by the IPC Global Steering Committee and the IPC Global Support Unit and is motivated by the commitment to:

  • improve effectiveness and efficiency of crisis response; and
  • strengthen mechanisms for disaster preparedness and risk reduction in food security.

In May 2010, in Honduras, WFP provided training on the IPC to a number of participants from different organizations, including the Government, and led an IPC pilot analysis at the national level.

After this exercise, all participating stakeholders agreed on the relevance of the IPC for improved decision making. Consensus was reached among stakeholders on the need for further trial of the IPC protocol through pilot analyses at department or municipality level. In the course of 2012, the IPC was piloted in four countries (Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala) at sub-national level.

IPC analyses are done on a regular basis in El SalvadorGuatemalaHonduras and Haiti.
