UN Global Counter-Terrorism Coordination Compact Committee

On 23 February 2018, the Secretary-General signed the new United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Coordination Compact.

The United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Coordination Compact is an agreed framework between the Secretary-General and the heads of United Nations Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force entities. It aims to strengthen a common action approach to coordination and coherence in the counter-terrorism and prevention of violent extremism (PVE) work of the United Nations system, and to strengthen support to Member States, at their request, in the implementation of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, and other relevant United Nations resolutions and mandates.

The Compact replaces the Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force (CTITF) coordination arrangement. The first meeting of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Compact Coordination Committee took place in New York on 6 December 2018 in the presence of Secretary-General.

The Task Force consisted of international entities which by virtue of their work have a stake in multilateral counter-terrorism efforts. Each entity makes contributions consistent with its own mandate. A recent compilation of activities undertaken by CTITF entities in implementing the Strategy was issued in the report of the Secretary-General in June 2018.
