Hunger-Free Latin America and the Caribbean Initiative

Group of Latin American and Caribbean Countries in the United Nations (GRULAC).

The Group of Latin American and Caribbean Countries in the United Nations (GRULAC) is an non-binding dialogue group that brings together 33 member countries of the United Nations Organization (UN) that are in this region in order to be coordinated and to create awareness regarding different topics.

This is one of the five regional groups in which the members of the UN are divided. The others are Africa, Asia-Pacific, East Europe and West Europe.

GRULAC meets periodically to exchange opinions about topics on the international agenda, follow-up on the topics that are on the agenda of existing international forums in Geneva, define positions they have in common, and be coordinated to back up the candidates of the different UN organizations.

GRULAC, in 2006, formalized its support to the Initiative and periodically monitors its activity.
