Independent Review of the IDPS / New Deal

The Independent Review of the New Deal/International Dialogue is underway. By the end of August, it is envisaged that the country level studies will have begun. We also envisage that emerging observations will feed into an IDPS side event at the UNGA in September. A zero draft report of the Independent Review will be presented at the Steering Group meeting on 4 November 2015, and at a planned workshop to discuss the results on the morning of 5 November. All of this will feed into our discussions leading to the Ministerial in 2016.
