Reports of the Special Committee on the Charter of the United Nations and on the Strengthening of the Role of the Organization (e.g. A/60/33, para. 61)
Transform the role of the Trusteeship Council
"Member States appear to have decided to retain the Trusteeship Council. The Secretary-General proposes, therefore, that it be reconstituted as the forum through which Member States exercise their collective trusteeship for the integrity of the global environment and common areas such as the oceans, atmosphere and outer space" (A/51/950, para. 85).
"I invite States to consider making the Council available as a multi-stakeholder body to tackle emerging challenges and, especially, to serve as a deliberative forum to act on behalf of succeeding generations. Among other tasks, it could issue advice and guidance with respect to long-term governance of the global commons, delivery of global public goods and managing global public risks." (A/75/982, para. 125)
