The Intergovernmental Preparatory Meeting (IPM) took place from February 28 to March 4, at the same time as the first week of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW).

The aim of this session was to draw on the obstacles, lessons learned and best practices identified and discussed at CSD-12. Three Secretary General’s reports addressed each of the thematic areas (water, sanitation and human settlements) and were submitted for consideration by the IPM. Each report included a number of policy options and possible actions aimed at expediting implementation.
