Overview of IPC Chronic Food Insecurity Protocols

The purpose of this module is to provide analysts with succinct and clear guidance for completing the Protocols for Integrated Phase Classification of Chronic Food Insecurity and for conducting the IPC Chronic Analysis. These protocols include tools and procedures, and are presented according to the four Functions of the IPC: (i) Build Technical Consensus; (ii) Classify Severity and Identify Key Drivers; (iii) Communicate for Action; and (iv) Quality Assurance.

All protocols should be completed in the country-owned and -managed to mainstream and facilitate the analysis, especially those for Function 2.

More detailed and in-depth guidance, including reasoning for technical decisions and other relevant issues, is included in IPC Resources on the IPC website.
