In accordance with paragraph 132 of the Addis Agenda, the annual FfD Forum results in intergovernmentally agreed conclusions and recommendations that are fed into the overall follow-up and review of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development.

The modalities towards a consensual outcome document of the FfD Forum are defined in General Assembly resolution 70/192. Accordingly, the President of ECOSOC is invited to consider appointing two co-facilitators, who prepare the draft conclusions and recommendations and facilitate consultations among Member States with a view to reaching intergovernmental agreement on that draft. More recently, General Assembly resolution 71/217 reconfirmed these modalities.

Once the consensus is reached on draft outcome document, the co-facilitators would transmit it, through a letter, to the President of ECOSOC. The draft intergovermentally agreed conclusions and recommendations are then adopted at the FfD Forum and transmitted to the HLPF through a procedural report of the Council.

The Intergovernmentally agreed conclusions and recommendations of the 2016 FfD Forum are contained in the procedural report of the 2016 Forum (E/FFDF/2016/3).
