And would CSD 13 pick up where 12 had left, on a rather upbeat note?”(Major Group Comment) This background paper by Richard Sherman provides an overview of the core elements of the CSD-11 decision on the CSD’s future organisation of work and the multi-year programme of work, outlines the problems and offers possible solutions for a more coherent linkages between the CSD review and policy sessions. It also contains several tables in an Annex which highlight a possible framework for structuring the CSD Review and Policy Year outcomes.
