Executive Summary

  1. The Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) was initiated in Somalia in 2004 as a means of providing meta‐analysis of available food security data for informing policy response and the allocation of resources to address widespread food insecurity. It has since developed into a standardized scale that integrates food security, nutrition and livelihood information to create information products for use in decision making at the global, regional and national levels. The IPC process draws on the technical experience and strategic strengths of eight institutional partners to build consensus on appropriate protocols for food security analysis.
