- § To distil lessons and good practices in respect of policy formulation in each of the nine policy areas identified in the just transition framework, through tripartite dialogue; and

(b) decided that the cost of the Meeting, estimated at US$317,000, be financed, in the first instance, from savings that may arise under Part I of the budget for 2012–13 or, failing that, through the use of the provision for unforeseen expenditure, Part II. Should this not prove possible, the Director-General would propose alternative methods of financing at a later stage in the biennium.
