Member agencies

Jointly managed by FAO and IFAD, in close cooperation with WFP, the Network consists of interested UN organizations which participate in, and support, country-level Thematic Groups. Members of the Network are listed below.

The Administrative Committee on Coordination (ACC)

The ACC was established in 1946 by the Economic and Social Council as a standing committee to supervise implementation of agreements between the United Nations and the specialized agencies, to ensure the coordination of approved programmes and, more generally, to promote cooperation within the UN system in the pursuit of the common goals of Member States. Participation in the ACC includes the executive heads of the specialized agencies (ILO, FAO, UNESCO, WHO, World Bank, IMF, ICAO, UPU, ITU, WMO, IMO, WIPO, IFAD, UNIDO, WTO); the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA); and nine United Nations programmes (UNCTAD, UNEP, UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF, WFP, UNDCP, UNHCR and UNRWA).
