Monrovia - High Level Panel meeting on Post 2015

The UN Secretary-General's High Level Panel on Post 2015 conducted its third meeting in Monrovia from 30 January to 1 February 2013.  The theme:  "National Building Blocks for Sustained Prosperity".  Panel members discussed development, economic transformation and national growth.  Civil society activists met for two days prior to the high level panel, before presenting its recommendations to the panel members.

A lot has been written about this meeting  -- and if you've been following the process, you likely received dozens of emails about it.  On this post, we aim to share some of the key analysis, documents and resources.  We hope this will be useful to campaigners as we continue to lobby and mobilise for The World We Want.
