IASC Agency Focal Points

Each IASC member agency appoints a focal point to coordinate ongoing activities at the IASC and its Operational Policy and Advocacy Group and other subsidiary bodies, as well as their respective agencies' follow up to IASC decisions and developments. If you work for an IASC Member Agency, your focal point will be your person to go to for updates from the IASC and how your agency is engaging.
