The IASC Working Group is composed of the directors of the Emergency Programmes of the IASC agencies or their equivalent counterparts.

The IASC WG will meet in ad hoc meetings as necessary, and will meet once a year for an extended meeting to review the work of the Task Teams and the Reference Groups, to take stock of humanitarian policy issues, and to agree on an annual work plan.

Meetings alternate between Rome, Geneva and New York for two and half days, hosted by IASC agencies on a rotational basis.

The Working Group is chaired by the Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator, Ms. Kyung-wha Kang . Supported by the IASC Secretariat, he is responsible for the preparation of issues, consultations and follow-up actions.
