Study commissioned by DESA/ DSD Major Groups programme reviews the history of Major Groups’ engagement with the CSD highlighting successful and less successful practices, identifies lessons learned from the experience and concerns raised by participants through interviews and desk reviews, finds support for the Major Groups framework accompanied by a need to address serious issues and concerns with its working, highlights best practices emerging from the CSD experience and other UN processes that should be replicated in developing modalities for the newly established high level political forum, and presents options and recommendations for consideration by Member States, the UN, Major Groups and other stakeholders.
