IPC Global Support Unit and Global Food Security Cluster. Guidance on Global Standards for Collaboration at Country Level

Guideline

The Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) is a set of standardized tools that aims at providing a "common currency" for classifying the severity and magnitude of food insecurity. The IPC draws from existing data and information produced by governments, UN Agencies, NGOs and other agencies located in-country. It is based on consensus-building processes to provide decision makers with a rigorous analysis of food insecurity along with objectives for response in both emergency and development contexts. 
The purpose of this document is to address this challenge by outlining standardized guidance to country gFSC and IPC Technical Working Groups (TWG) on collaboration at country level for effective planning of IPC analysis and use of its findings to inform humanitarian plans and response. This guidance note results from collaboration between the global Food Security Cluster (gFSC) and the IPC Global Support Unit (IPC GSU) at global level.
