IASC Principals are the heads of all IASC member agencies or their representatives.

They meet twice a year in conferences chaired by the Emergency Relief Coordinator, Ms. Valerie Amos, usually in April and December. For urgent matters, the IASC Principals can schedule ad hoc meetings.

»  Responsibilities of IASC Principals:

  • making strategic and policy decisions which have system-wide implications;
  • endorsing major operational decisions, particularly with respect to implementation of the Transformative Agenda (TA);
  • arbitration where no consensus can be reached at the Working Group or Emergency Directors levels;
  • advocating common humanitarian principles, collectively or individually, on behalf of the IASC;
  • approving the general work programme of the IASC, the WG, and the EDG;
  • bringing issues to the attention of the Secretary-General and the Security Council, through the ERC; and
  • designating Humanitarian Coordinators and selecting coordination arrangements.

The Emergency Relief Coordinator, supported by the IASC Secretariat, consults IASC member agencies on the agenda for IASC Principals Meetings.
