General Assembly and its Ad Hoc Working Group of the Whole

The Ad Hoc Working Group of the Whole of the General Assembly, established in 2008, under the leadership of two Co-Chairs, one from a developed country and one from a developing country, oversees and guides the Regular Process. The Ad Hoc Working Group of the Whole meets at United Nations Headquarters to adopt recommendations to the General Assembly. Meetings of the Ad Hoc Working Group are held annually, but in some cases, have been held biannually for two to three days, to address the workload. Informal open meetings have also been held to facilitate broader discussion on some issues.
