Venue: London, Nairobi, Dhaka and Bogotá and streamed live online
The High-Level Panel, appointed by the UN Secretary General to advise him on the post-2015 agenda, reports on 30th May. Will the report live up to the hype? Will its recommendations meet the aspirations of the many groups and individuals who have contributed to the debate around post-2015, and will it chart a politically effective way forward for governments? This event provides a global audience with a chance to discuss the report with each other and with two key panel members.
The event will be held simultaneously in London, Nairobi, Dhaka and Bogotá. In each location, an audience and speakers will discuss the report with each other and with participants in the other locations, to provide a global response. In Nairobi, Betty Maina, Chief Executive of the Kenyan Association of Manufacturers, and member of the HLP, will present the report and answer questions. In London, Amina Mohammed, the Secretary General’s special advisor on post-2015 and ex officio member of the HLP, will offer her reflections on the report.
As well as responding to the HLP report, the event will provide an opportunity to consider its implications for the intergovernmental negotiations on post-2015 goals in the Open Working Group, and the lead up to the UN special event on the MDGs and post-2015 in September 2013.
