Background

At its nineteenth session (3-4 March 2010), the Committee agreed that it would next meet directly after the High-level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly, in order to review the implications of its outcome for the Committee’s further work, with an aim of delineating how it could best contribute to the urgent action required over the next five years within the framework of the Millennium Development Goals, as well as how it might relate the outcome to the broader development agenda, including the need for a fairer, greener and more sustainable globalization.

Action

The Committee noted that its consideration of the outcome of the Millennium Development Goals Summit was linked to its deliberations on moving towards a fairer, greener, sustainable globalization.  An early discussion on the parameters of such work, which might involve external stakeholders, should be set within the context of the related agenda on the impact of globalization.
