Abstract: 

The purpose of this report is to identify key issues and choices and to describe the broader context within which decisions are being made. The full report contains 28 consensus recommendations that are clearly marked in appropriately titled boxes at the end of the sections to which they relate. (The recommendations are also summarized in this section in similar boxes.) In addition, the Group is including a number of other boxes titled "Different Viewpoints." In each case, three different opinions are expressed that represent the range of opinions expressed within the Group on the subject. Although we may not agree with one another, we do concur that each of the different opinions expressed could be considered by policymakers en route to decisions. We hope you find this unique summary of the major debating points helpful.
