The UN System Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB) is the longest-standing and highest-level coordination forum of the United Nations system. The 31-member body is chaired by the UN Secretary-General, and meets twice a year.

CEB’s main responsibility is to serve as an internal coordination mechanism that provides high-level system-wide strategic guidance, promotes coherent leadership, shared vision and enhanced cooperation, and considers forward-looking solutions in response to mandates stemming from the governing bodies of its member organizations.

The CEB and its High-level Committees promote coherence and cooperation on a range of programmatic, policy and management issues faced by UN system organizations. Learn more about the issues we work on the Topics page.
