FWIW, as it would be easy to simply reply to this formulation that no
"concrete measures" have been taken, I'd suggested,

In particular, we would very much welcome information on a) any discussions
and consultations that have been held with governments and other
stakeholders on the substance and modalities of enhanced cooperation, and b)
the plans for beginning to involve civil society in the process per the
clear mandate in paragraph 71 of the Tunis Agenda.

Per Michael's point about realistic expectations and the limits of
transparency, I wouldn't expect much of a substantive recap of the
conversations, but it'd be nice to at least have acknowledgement that
they've happened.  If even that's impossible, I guess it clarifies the
meaning of CS' "involvement" in its "respective role."
