High-level Panel to advise on the global development framework beyond 2015, the target date for the Millennium Development
Goals (MDGs). The Panel is co-chaired by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
of Liberia, and Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom, and it includes leaders from civil society,
private sector and government.
The Panel is part of the Secretary-General’s post-2015 initiative mandated by the 2010 MDG Summit. UN Member States have called for open, inclusive consultations involving civil society, the private sector, academia and research institutions from all regions, in addition to the UN system, to advance the development framework beyond 2015.
The work of the Panel will reflect new development challenges while also drawing on experience gained in implementing the MDGs, both in terms of results achieved and areas for improvement.
The Panel’s work will be closely coordinated with that of the intergovernmental working group tasked to design Sustainable Development Goals, as agreed at the Rio +20 conference. The reports of both groups will be submitted to Member States for their further deliberations. The Panel will submit a report containing recommendations to the Secretary-General in May 2013.
The discussions of the Panel in Bali, Indonesia will focus on Global Partnership and Means of Implementation, with a focus on strategies for implementation and opportunities to shape a global consensus on the new development agenda.
In keeping with the 24 Framing Questions developed by the Panel in November 2012, key issues that will be discussed in this meeting include:
Each meeting of the HLP has included events aimed at enabling a structured dialogue between the HLP members and key
stakeholder groups, including academics and research communities, civil societies, national and local elected
representatives, youth and the business community that intend to providing inputs to HLP in recommending the next
development framework and agenda post the expiration of Millennium Development Goals in 2015.
In addition to this, an open consultation on the Framing Questions developed by the Panel was facilitated ahead of the Second HLP Meeting in London, United Kingdom and being further discussed at the Third HLP Meeting in Monrovia, Liberia to enable a large number of stakeholders’ representatives sharpening and structuring their dialogues and consultations to the substantive deliberations of the HLP.
The public sector consultation is calling for public sector representatives consists of government’s representative, parliamentarians, representatives of international organizations, representatives of the UN System and the UN bodies to be part of this reputable consultation.
In keeping with the emphasis on strategies for global partnership and means of implementation, stakeholder consultation
day at the HLP meeting in Bali will aim to enable a dialogue on emerging priorities across key stakeholders – and a
continued emphasis on ensuring that the aspirations of communities and citizens are at the heart of deliberations on the
new development agenda.
HLP interactions with stakeholder groups will be held on 25 March 2013 in accordance with a program outline that is being developed based on outreach focal points from the Government of Indonesia, the Secretariat to the High Level Panel and the Executive Office of the Secretary-General (EOSG).
