CEB member organizations were actively engaged in the consultative process to prepare the 2007 triennial comprehensive policy review of operational activities of the United Nations development system. The Department of Economic and Social Affairs prepared two reports of the Secretary-General to facilitate deliberations by Member States: (a) an analytical report on the implementation of resolution 59/250 (A/62/73-E/2007/52); and (b) a report with conclusions and recommendations (A/62/253).

In preparation of General Assembly resolution 67/226 on the quadrennial comprehensive policy review of United Nations operational activities for development, the United Nations Development Group worked in close collaboration with the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the Secretariat to ensure that the deliberations of Member States were thoroughly informed by solid evidence and the collective advice of the United Nations development system.
