Protocol 2.5: Meet minimum evidence and analysis requirements

IPC Evidence-level Criteria (Table 11) identify minimum requirements for three distinct levels. Requirements are based on the number of pieces of R2 and R1 direct evidence, differentiating between the number of pieces of direct evidence (i.e. evidence on indicators of food consumption and livelihood change as included in the IPC Acute Food Insecurity Reference Table), as well as further pieces of evidence on contributing factors and outcomes.

The minimum analysis requirements identify the core analytical products that IPC Acute Food Insecurity analysis should provide, presented in Table 12 below.
