GENERAL ASSEMBLY:

The Secretary-General of ICPD is expected to transmit a package to the 48th session of the General Assembly that will include the ECOSOC decisions, the annotated outline of the draft plan of action, and her own progress report that will describe Secretariat activities to date. Delegations will be given the opportunity to respond to the annotated outline and to provide the Secretariat with specific input for the draft plan of action. It is unlikely that any of these discussions will be carried out in the Plenary of the General Assembly. Rather, it is expected that substantive discussions will be carried out in large part in the Second Committee. There is some question as to whether a special working group of the Second Committee will be formed to address the annotated outline and provide additional input to the ICPD Secretariat.
