Resident Coordinators and their Offices

The Resident Coordinator system is part of the UN Secretariat as of 1 January 2019.

Today, 130 Resident Coordinators lead 132 Resident Coordinator’s Offices worldwide, servicing 162 countries and territories. 

Resident Coordinators are supported by five core staff in their offices:

  • Strategic planner (Team Leader) 
  • Economist
  • Data, monitoring and reporting officer
  • Partnership officer
  • Communication officer

Resident Coordinator’s Offices may host additional capacities, depending on the needs and priorities in country. These include, for example, Gender Advisors and/or Peace and Development Advisors. Representatives of UN agencies may also be hosted in the Resident Coordinator’s Office, when the agency doesn’t have its own office in the country.
