Local Network Advisory Group

The Local Network Advisory Group (LNAG) was created in order to provide the UN Global Compact Office with advice and guidance on matters of importance to all Local Networks. The Advisory Group is also a key conduit for Local Networks (LNs) to raise ideas and concerns with the Global Compact Office in a systematic way.

The Advisory Group consists of 7 regionally representative members from the Americas, Africa, Eastern Europe, MENA, South, -Central and North Asia, South-East Asia and the Pacific, and Western Europe. Members are elected every two years by the LNs from their regions during the Annual Local Networks Forum (ALNF).  The Head of the Local Networks is an ex-officio member of the group. The Advisory Group members will be from – and elected by – LNs that have a current signed MOU with the Global Compact Office and that have a clear governance structure. 

The elected LNAG members nominate the Chair from among group members. The Chair occupies the ex officio Local Network role on the Global Compact Board. The Chair, to be selected at the ALNF, will hold the position for 1 year and can be re-selected for a second year.

The Global Compact Local Networks team is the secretariat of the LNAG.
