The Executive Committee plays an important role in steering and coordinating the Commission’s activities, tracking the implementation of recommendations and following up on important regional and global issues. It held its sixth meeting in Marrakech, Morocco, on 15 and 16 June 2019. In its seventh meeting, which will be held online to the current global health crisis, the Executive Committee will follow-up on the implementation of the recommendations made by the Commission at its sixth special session, held in Amman on 21 and 22 December 2019.
