IPC-CH Dashboard now online: Keep track of the global count of Acute Food Insecurity

Apr 2022

Rome/Dakar/ Niamey April 28, 2022 - Keep track of the global count of people experiencing high levels of acute food insecurity, classified in Crisis or worse (IPC/CH Phase 3 or above) with the IPC-CH Dashboard. The new collaborative dashboard provides a real-time visual display of the total number of people in each IPC/CH phase across 40 countries.

The data combines the latest analyses by the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) and the Cadre Harmonisé (CH) [link to CH site]. These figures currently include 40 countries (24 IPC, 16 CH) and capture all IPC and CH analyses that are presently valid. Country analyses with validity periods that expired within the last three months are also included.

The CH and the IPC use a similar analytical approach. Both initiatives produce relevant, consensual, rigorous, and transparent findings on current and projected acute food insecurity. Over the years, CH and IPC partners have been working closely to harmonise their tools and processes and promote cross-learning and mutual support in various areas of work, including technical development, analysis, quality assurance, communication, etc.

Enhanced collaboration for the technical development of tools and procedures has led to increased similarities and convergence between the initiatives. These efforts have resulted in comparable analysis findings in more than 40 countries (i.e. 18 countries using the CH scale and 25 countries using the IPC).
