They survey was carried out through a written questionnaire that was emailed to stakeholders, intergovernmental bodies and governments through various e-groups (e.g. CSD / WSSD caucuses) and to direct contacts. The results of the survey have been compiled here into a summary and a full report.
The report aims to provide an initial outline of some stakeholder preferences regarding the future structure and activities of the CSD. It also includes direct references to some of the respondents’ comments or suggestions for alternative approaches.
