What are agreed conclusions and how do I find them?
Last Updated: Nov 15, 2016
Agreed conclusions are mainly adopted by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and its subsidiary bodies as one of the outputs for a session.
The Commission on the Status of Women website says this about its agreed conclusions:
The principal output of the Commission on the Status of Women is the agreed conclusions on priority themes set for each year. Agreed conclusions contain an analysis of the priority theme and a set of concrete recommendations for governments, intergovernmental bodies and other institutions, civil society actors and other relevant stakeholders, to be implemented at the international, national, regional and local level.
Agreed conclusions are not published as individual documents, although the draft version is likely to have been issued as one (e,g, E/1999/L.25). The final adopted version is usually published in the report of the body for its session. For example, draft E/1999/L.25 was published in the 1999 ECOSOC report to the General Assembly (A/54/3/Rev.1) as agreed conclusion 1999/1.
