The role of Regional NGO Coordinators, as non-voting members of the NGO/DPI Executive Committee, is to support regional NGO activities through consultation and advice. They encourage regional NGOs to associate with the Department of Public Information. They also meet with academics, the media and youth and mobilize support for UN-related projects and programs. They work with Executive Committee Regional Liaison Officers to develop action plans to implement their work at the regional and national levels.
The Global NGO Executive Committee (GNEC) was founded in 1962 to promote a closer working relationship between the United Nations and the non-governmental organizations (NGOs) associated with it. GNEC acts as a liaison between the NGO community and the UN's Department of Global Communications (DGC). GNEC provides strategic guidance to help NGOs become more effective partners of the UN.
