Organizational Setting
The Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) is a global, multi-partner innovative initiative to facilitate decision-making for improved food security analysis. The IPC uses a set of tools and protocols for classifying the severity and nature of food insecurity that integrates food security, nutrition and livelihood information into a clear statement about the nature and severity of food insecurity and implications for the response. IPC incorporates a meta-analysis approach drawing on evidence-based analysis that includes a broad range of data sets and stakeholders. The demand for IPC is constantly increasing, and currently it is implemented in more than 25 countries around the world. The operational arm of the IPC Partnership – the IPC Global Support Unit (GSU) - is hosted within FAO and co-managed by FAO’s Agri-food Economics Division (ESA) and the Office of Emergencies and Resilience (OER).

3.) At the country level, inter-ministerial and multi-agency working groups support the introduction and implementation of the IPC by institutionalized Technical Working Groups.
