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.
This evidence-based approach uses international standards which allow comparability of situations across countries and over time. 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.
For IPC country analysis, the IPC Mapping Tool offers an enhanced interactive interface that shows a map of all the countries the IPC works in and allows you to download population data.
The IPC Population Tracking Tool is a new online platform that gives the public access to population data from more than 30 different countries. It allows users to download resource data for offline IPC analyses from the past three years.
