I. Organizational, administrative and other matter
Revitalization of the work of the General Assembly
This item, which was included in the agenda of the forty-sixth session of the General Assembly, in 1991, had originally been proposed for inclusion in the draft agenda of that session by the President of the Assembly at its forty-fifth session (see decision 45/461).
At its fifty-fourth session, the General Assembly decided to defer consideration of the item and to include it in the draft agenda of its subsequent session (decision 54/491).
At its resumed fifty-eighth session, in July 2004, the General Assembly adopted a number of measures, inter alia, to reorganize the agenda of the Assembly; and decided to review the provisions of the reorganized agenda at its sixty-first session with a view to making further improvements (resolution 58/316).
At its sixty-second session, the General Assembly adopted the proposed programme of work and timetable of the First Committee for 2008 (decision 62/515), the Special Political and Decolonization Committee (Fourth Committee) (decision 62/524), the draft programmes of work of the Second Committee (decision 62/543) and the Third Committee (decision 62/535) and the provisional programme of work of the Sixth Committee (decision 62/517) for the sixty-third session.
At its resumed sixty-second session, in September 2008, the General Assembly decided to establish, at its sixty-third session, an ad hoc working group on the revitalization of the General Assembly, open to all Member States, in order, inter alia, to submit a report thereon to the Assembly at its sixty-third session (resolution 62/276).
No advance documentation is expected.
