The Consultative Committee on Programme and Operational Questions (CCPOQ) carried out interagency coordination on substantive questions related to operational and programmatic issues.

The CCPOQ coordinated the follow-up, within the system, to major UN conferences and summits, common approaches at the field level, including the overall functioning of the Resident Coordinator System and enhanced system-wide collaboration in the development and application of common programming instruments.

Since October 2001, inter-agency coordination on substantive questions related to operational and programmatic issues is being carried out by the High-Level Committee on Programmes which has subsumed the functions of CCPOQ.
