As a result of the CEB review and the integration of the United Nations Development Group into the CEB structure, a process of consultations to ensure an alignment of the work programmes and respective responsibilities of the three CEB pillars — the High-Level Committee on Management, the High-Level Committee on Programmes and the United Nations Development Group — was also begun during the reporting period. A review of the procedures and working methods of the Committees, a consideration of methods for improving the functioning of the CEB meetings themselves and the setting of the CEB agenda were also undertaken. In addition, the secretariats of the CEB and the Secretary-General’s Policy Committee, the main mechanism to support decision-making by the Secretary-General on issues of strategic importance to the Organization, meet regularly to coordinate their respective agendas.
