Under the chairmanship of the Secretary-General, the CEB brings together twice a year the Executives heads of 29 member organizations, including all the UN Specialized Agencies, the UN Funds and Programmes, and the Bretton Woods Institutions. The CEB is the principal inter-agency coordination body on policy and management issues.
At the invitation of the Director-General, the first session of the CEB for 2015 (Internal UN meeting) will be hosted by UNESCO on 29 and 30 April.
The origins of the CEB date back to 1946 when the Administrative Committee on Coordination (ACC) was established, pursuant to Economic and Social Council resolution 13 (III), as a standing committee under the chairmanship of the Secretary-General of the United Nations.
The CEB is assisted in its coordination role by three sub-Committees: the High Level Committee on Programmes, the High Level Committee on Management and the UN Development Group.
