  • promote the realization of the objectives of the International Year of the Family;
  • promote the integration of a family perspective into policy-making at the national, regional and international levels;
  • exchange expertise and experiences, disseminate information and support networking on family issues;
  • support family research and diagnostic studies;
  • encourage and support coordination on family policies and programmes within national governments and within the United Nations system;
  • provide technical assistance and capacity-building support to developing country Governments, at their request, in the area of the family; and
  • liaise and dialogue with Governments, civil society and the private sector on family issues.
