The fourth meeting of the High Level Panel will focus on the theme of: “Global Partnership.” The first day of the HLP meeting will be an outreach and consultation day where the Panel of Eminent Persons will take stock of key constituencies’ emerging positions and new evidence, including global CSOs.
The CSOs outreach day will be a one-day town hall meeting involving 150 civil society representatives and members of the HLP, to be held on 25 March 2013. This meeting will be preceded by a CSOs Pre-Consultative Forum on 24 March, with 150 participants (50 International and 100 Indonesian). Civil society participants will have an opportunity to meet among themselves in order to prepare for the engagement with HLP members and agree on strategic positions. CSOs will also use this platform to review outcomes of various civil society engagements that have taken place.
Arrangements for the High Level Panel Meeting in Bali, Indonesia are being jointly coordinated by the Government of Indonesia and the Secretariat of the High Level Panel on the Post 2015 Development Agenda (UN HLP).
