RECEIVED October 25-th:

Reminder: Global online consultation: High-level Panel of Eminent Persons on the post-2015 development agenda (19-26 October)  ???

The High-level Panel of Eminent Persons on the post-2015 development agenda will hold its first substantive meeting in London from 31 October to 2 November 2012, and will focus on the issue of household poverty.

As part of the Panel’s efforts to reach out to civil society and other stakeholders, a global online consultation was being held from 19-26 October around the same framing questions the Panel will address, namely on:

1. Human development; and
2. Jobs and livelihoods.

Interested organizations and networks are invited to participate in the consultation here: Translations into French and Spanish will be available on Wednesday 24 October.

Substantive contributions will be compiled and synthesized by the UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service (UN-NGLS) and inform the Panel discussions in London.

This process is expected to be repeated for the subsequent Panel meetings, where more lead-time will be given for groups to be able to develop submissions
this we guess because the present event was not well publicized to the point we wonder if this was not a case that home office undermines change that was suggested by the outreach effort.

Subsequent High-level Panel meetings (dates to be confirmed) will be held in Monrovia (Liberia) and Bali (Indonesia) on the following topics:

•        Monrovia: national development
•        Bali: global partnerships
