The UN Inter-Agency Committee (IAC) for the DESD is a forum of UN agencies for open-ended collaboration towards the effective implementation of the Decade. The IAC promotes the role of ESD and its implications for all forms of international initiatives such as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

This year’s annual meeting includes a Thematic Workshop on Climate Change Education and will focus on the development of an ESD programme framework after 2014 and the preparation of the final report on the DESD.
The IAC brings together 22 UN agencies all committed to achieving the DESD goals: UNESCO, FAO, ILO, UNAIDS, UNDP, UNEP, UNFPA, UN Global Compact, UN-Habitat, UNHCR, UNICEF, UN-ISDR, UNITAR, UNU, WFP, WHO, World Bank, WTO, UNCCD, UNCBD, UNFCCC and UNDESA.
