In-depth consultation report presented to the HLP on 26 November

At the request of the Secretariat of the UN Secretary-General’s High-level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, the UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service (NGLS) conducted an online consultation to gather inputs for consideration by Panelists and the Secretariat from 26 October through 7 November 2012, in two phases. The consultation, undertaken through the virtual platform www.worldwewant2015.org/Post2015HLP, enabled civil society to respond to four framing questions related to the focus of the High-level Panel’s meeting on individual and household level poverty, which took place from 31 October to 2 November 2012 in London. Specifically, the consultation sought feedback to four questions relating to two main themes: 1) Human development and 2) Jobs and livelihoods:

On Human Development, respondents addressed:

  • 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?

On Jobs and Livelihoods, respondents addressed:

  • What policies and practices best promote equitable empowerment of the poor and marginalized to ensure an adequate standard of living?
  • How can employment be meaningfully approached?

This summary report reflects 320 written contributions from 135 organizations, international networks and individual respondents, as well as reports from meetings of the Panel’s outreach day, held on 2 November in London, which included: six civil society roundtables, a private sector meeting, a Youth Event, and a Town Hall meeting between more than 200 representatives of civil society organizations and members of the Panel. Discussion via Twitter through the designated hashtag #Post2015HLP has also been included.
