Chapter Summary

The UN system, which has been designed as an association of loosely connected organizations, requires considerable co-ordination efforts to limit overlapping, duplication and friction. The coordination in the UN system takes place at three different levelswithin member states, between member states, and between organizations. An effective coordination of the activities of the various components of the UN system is hardly possible without cooperation between the governing bodies of the individual organizations, which currently does not exist. Coordination within the UN system is subject to marked limitations which are inherent in the system. The main coordinating body within the UN System at the level of the Secretariats, the Administrative Committee on Coordination (ACC), was renamed Chief Executive Board for Coordination (CEB) and its subsidiary machinery was restructured in 2000-2001.
