An undertaking of this kind is consistent with the duties of ISSA to provide its members with technical support in improving their administrative capacity and with the objectives of the current triennium. The text of the Declaration was developed in co-operation with experts from the ILO Social Security Department and it was unanimously adopted by the ISSA and IAPSF member organizations who gathered in Moscow in December 2005.
