Agriculture and Food Security

Building food security in Eastern Africa

Our work

We work to improve Food Security and Agricultural monitoring in Eastern Africa. We are committed to support countries’ and organisations to make better decisions in food security, nutrition and resilience. We coordinate the meetings of the Food Security and Nutrition Working Group, a network of over 80 organizations working in the region to monitor food security and send monthly food security updates. ICPAC hosts the IGAD Food Security, Nutrition and Resilience Analysis Hub, IFRAH, which integrates the Food Security and Nutrition Working Group (FSNWG), the Resilience Analysis Unit (RAU) and the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC).
