The survey relies on data compiled by CTED from information and updates provided by Member States; visit reports (in the case of the more than 40 States visited by the Committee); and information provided by international, regional and subregional organizations.

The Committee and its Executive Directorate continue to encourage this dialogue in order to promote exchange of information and to understand the views of Member States on implementation of resolution 1373 (2001).
