As with other countries in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region, the 2016 El Niño phenomenon provided impetus for Eswatini, formerly known as Swaziland, to adopt the IPC to classify food insecurity. The country conducted its first IPC Acute Food Insecurity analysis in 2013. Since then, the country has been conducting one IPC Acute Food Insecurity training and analysis per year. Following the IPC Chronic Food Insecurity training conducted in 2017, the country plans to conduct its first IPC Chronic Food Insecurity analysis in 2018.

The IPC is used to inform and report on food insecurity in the country. IPC activities are integrated in the Eswatini Vulnerability Committee chaired by the Government and comprising of UN Agencies (FAO, WFP and UNICEF) and NGOs (Oxfam, Care and Save the Children). Save the Children is the focal organization for IPC activities in the country.
