Protocol 2.5: Meet minimum evidence and analysis requirements

The IPC evidence-level criteria (Box 55) identify minimum requirements for three distinct levels. Requirements are based on the number of reliable and somewhat reliable pieces of direct evidence available, differentiating between the number of pieces of direct evidence (i.e. evidence on indicators in the Chronic Food Insecurity Reference Table), as well as further pieces of evidence on contributing factors and outcomes.

The minimum analysis requirements (Box 56) identify the core analytical products that IPC Chronic Food Insecurity Analysis should provide.
