This report provides an overview of major developments in inter-agency cooperation within the framework of the United Nations System Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB), during the period covering its session in October 2008 and its session in April 2009.

In the last year, the global community has been exposed to multiple financial, economic and social crises. Building on intergovernmental mandates and an important set of internal reforms in the prior year, CEB responded to the demands placed on the United Nations system across a range of programme, management and operational matters in a timely and integrated manner.
