Items on the agenda are numbered in order of what will be discussed.

The general debate is a high-level event, typically attended by Member States' Heads of State or Government, Government Ministers and GPA Delegates.
Special Sessions can be triggered in three different ways, at the request of the Security Council, at the request of a majority of GPA Members States or by a single member, as long as a majority concurs. Special sessions typically cover one single topic and end with the adoption of one or two outcome documents, such as a political declaration, action plan or strategy to combat said topic.
