Our Team

Meet our global team! The team that facilitates the implementation of ILC's strategy by supporting ILC governing bodies, member activities, mobilising resources, and promoting communication, knowledge sharing, and learning among members and partners. The Secretariat is headed by the Director, who is accountable to the Coalition Council, whereas Regional Coordinators are accountable to the Regional Committees. Although we work together as a team towards our mission, we are organised by clusters:

Connect | Network vibrancy, regional coordination and national engagement strategies

Mobilise |  Knowledge, learning, M&E and data

Influence | Global policy and commitment based intiatives

Corporate/Governance |  Planning, administration, governance, donor relations and communications
