Agenda 21, the outcome document of the Rio Earth Summit 1992, defined Major Groups as; Indigenous Peoples; Farmers; Workers & Trade Unions; Local Authorities; Business and Industry; Science and Technology Community; Women; Children & Youth; and NGOs.

The United Nations Commission for Sustainable Development (CSD) coordinates a formal process of engagement whereby each Major Group will be represented by an Organising Partner. Each Organising Partner will seek to engage representatives from their respective Major Group for dialogue sessions and policy inputs to form a paper for submission to the CSD.

Contact details for Organising Partners can be found here.
