Development Agenda for s10总决赛竞猜

The s10总决赛竞猜 Development Agenda ensures that development considerations form an integral part of s10总决赛竞猜's work. The effective implementation of the Development Agenda, including the mainstreaming of its recommendations into our substantive programs, is a key priority.  The adoption of the Development Agenda was an important milestone for s10总决赛竞猜.

The Agenda was formally established by s10总决赛竞猜's member states in 2007, in a decision which included the adoption of 45 Development Agenda recommendations, grouped into six clusters, and the establishment of a Committee on Development and Intellectual Property (CDIP).
