It is anticipated that the drafting committee will begin its work on Monday 8th May 2017 in the afternoon after receiving the resolutions from the Committee of the Whole
At its nineteenth session, on an informal basis, the Governing Council established an ad hoc open‑ended drafting committee, chaired by one of the vice-presidents, to pre-screen draft resolutions submitted by delegations with a view to merging, reconciling or clarifying them, as necessary, prior to their consideration by the Governing Council in plenary meeting. The Governing Council will most likely consider this practice, which was widely considered to have enhanced the efficiency of its work, with the report of the drafting committee first passing through the Committee of the Whole for endorsement prior to final adoption by the Governing Council.
