  • The Linkage Group representatives will be guided by the Representatives charter.
  • The Linkage Group reports to the Plenary annually, through a report issued to the Secretariat.
  • All Linkage Groups members should have the opportunity to agree the contents of the report, where agreement has not been reached this should be stated.
