Private Superforecasting Workshop asks:

Before 1 October 2024, will the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) report a situation or projection that any part of the population of Sudan has or will reach "Phase 5 - Famine" of acute food insecurity?

The IPC is a "multi-partner initiative for improving food security and nutrition analysis and decision-making," which analyzes, among other things, areas of the world with acute food insecurity, including Sudan (IPC - Overview, Action Against Hunger). The outcome will be determined using table and map details as published by the IPC (IPC - Sudan, see "Latest related analyses"). In its update released 12 December 2023, IPC indicated that a population of 4,898,486 people was projected to reach Phase 4 between October 2023 and February 2024, but none reaching Phase 5 (IPC - Sudan Projection Update 12 December 2023). From this page, you can look at past releases by clicking "--- select ---" next to "Select Another Analysis." The question will close as of the release date of the relevant release, irrespective of whether it states that a part has or will reach Phase 5.
