Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs Esther Brimmer is pleased to announce the United States has joined the Multilateral Organization Performance Assessment Network (MOPAN). The United States is the 17th country to join MOPAN since the network was formed in 2002 to assess the organizational effectiveness of major multilateral organisations.

The United States is strongly committed to an effective multilateral system and supports MOPAN’s work as a vital contribution to international efforts to review and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of international organizations.

By joining forces with other donor countries, the United States will minimize the cost and duplication of our own bilateral reviews of international organizations and substantively advance our push for greater accountability in those institutions under review. MOPAN’s emphasis on improving organizational effectiveness also increases the positive impact of international organization efforts around the world, including through strengthened cooperation with host governments and regional organizations.
