GFMD Structures

The GFMD Operating Modalities [ ES | FR ] were initially endorsed during the first meeting of the GFMD in Brussels in 2007 and updated in 2020. They aimed to provide a structuring framework to organize GFMD chairing arrangements, as well as funding and technical support to the Chair-in-Office. These Modalities were also meant to ensure continuity and to set out basic principles on the GFMD’s relations with the UN  and with other non-government partners, including civil society, the private sector, local and regional governments and youth.

The GFMD’s structures have continued to evolve over the course of its existence, and an overall framework is described by the following diagram:
