1.4 Focus of the Proposed Regional Meetings
The Member States and representatives of NGOs/civil society are expected to consult on the five core areas of the work of the United Nations; namely: peace and security, economic and social affairs, development cooperation, humanitarian affairs, and human rights.
According to the Secretary General, "the fifty-fifth session of the General Assembly will be preceded by numerous events of a more specialized nature in the United Nations Ė taking stock of progress achieved in the wake of world conferences, for example, or examining sectoral issues, as in the case of the tenth session of the United Nations conference on Trade and Development. The substantive results of those events need to be considered in a comprehensive manner and their implications for the overall structure and functioning of the United Nations system need to be spelled out systematically. The Millennium Summit and Assembly afford an opportunity for doing so. The Secretary Generalís report would include a synthesis of the major substantive and institutional implications of the prior events for the work of the Organization as a whole."
The Secretary Generalís report would also "draw on the results of consultations that are taking place within the Administrative Committee on Coordination."
