The Center for Development Services (CDS) facilitated a ‘Ground Level Panel’ in June 2013 in Tunis Village in Fayoum, Egypt. The Panel was comprised of a diverse group of twelve men and women living with poverty and marginalisation, including urban slum dwellers, disabled people, marginalised youth, women’s rights activists and people living in rural poverty.
The 12 panelists brought their own stories, experiences and dreams and deliberated the policy proposals of the UN High Level Panel (HLP) of Eminent Persons, for a post- Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) agenda for development. The Ground Level Panel produced a final communiqué of the outcomes of their deliberations. Download the communiqué at the link below.
