Team structures

The teams are as follows:

  • Policy and Technical (Global)
  • Policy and Technical (Regional)
  • Communications and Public Awareness
  • Administration and Fund-raising

The teams report to the Secretary General, through the Deputy Secretary General, in the case of the Policy and Technical (Regional) and the Communication and Public Awareness Action Plans. The Global Policy and Technical Action Plan is managed by the Secretary General and the Deputy Secretary General with input from other staff as appropriate. The Administration and Fund-raising Action Plan team is under the general supervision of the Secretary General. The Projects Coordinator post within this team works directly to the Deputy Secretary General. This is shown graphically on the following page with the staff allocated to each team indicated.
