To address specific priority issues, Task Forces may be established by the Steering Committee. Task Forces are time-bound and output-oriented, operate in close consultation with the Global Coordinator and will report to the Steering Committee. Task force composition is approved by the Steering Committee on the basis of the recommendation by the Global Coordinator. Each Task Force nominates a member to represent them on the Steering Committee when appropriate.
Topics that may be addressed through specific task forces include data quality, data sharing and access, socioeconomic monitoring, policy and communication, as well as supporting preparation of global, regional or thematic reports.
