The 34th session of the Commission for Social Development was held at UN Headquarters in New York from 10-20 April 1995. In its consideration of the Social Summit, the Commission focused on the arrangements for the implementation and follow-up of the Copenhagen Declaration and the Programme of Action. It adopted a draft resolution on the follow-up to the Summit transmitting its views and considerations to the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) at its substantive session of 1995. These views included: the recognition that the Commission for Social Development should have a central role in the follow-up to the Summit and that it should be in a position to increase the added value of its contributions to international cooperation for social development. The draft resolution also called for ECOSOC to review the mandate, agenda and composition of the Commission, including an expansion of its membership and the annualization of its meetings. The practice of opening its debates to experts and the main actors of civil society in the field of social development was also recommended.
