20 October 2012: The High-level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda (HLP) has announced the topics and locations for its first three substantive meetings, and a consultation process to enable broad participation in its deliberations. The first meeting, in London, UK, will focus on household poverty. The second meeting, in Monrovia, Liberia, will focus on national development, and the third meeting, in Bali, Indonesia, will focus on global partnerships.
The meeting sites correspond to the countries represented by the three Co-Chairs of the High-level Panel: David Cameron, Prime Minister, UK; Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President, Liberia; and Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, President, Indonesia.
The global online consultation process for the first meeting focuses on four questions: How do we ensure that all people, especially the most vulnerable and marginalized, have the food, water, energy, health care and education they need? What have we learned from existing Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and what should be added/updated/modified, or is a different approach needed? What policies and practices best promote equitable empowerment of the poor and marginalized to ensure an adequate standard of living? And, how can employment be meaningfully approached?
Substantive contributions will be compiled and submitted to the Panel ahead of their meeting, by the UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service (UN-NGLS). This online consultation process is expected to be repeated for all substantive meetings of the Panel. [Outline of HLP Consultation Plans]
