First day of the High Level Panel meeting in Monrovia!
As the Post 2015 UN High Level Panel meeting is set to take off today, Monday 28 January, Africa wide, global and Liberian CSOs have convened in Monrovia to agree and promote the civil society vision for the world.
The civil society vision will be presented to the High Level Panel on 30th January 2012. WASH civil society is very visible within these pre-meetings and and the great news is the Minister of Gender and Development of Liberia has added her voice to the call for the civil society vision to consider water and sanitation as a critical development issue that must be prioritsed by global leaders.
The Liberia CSOs WASH Network is privileged to be represented by the National Chairman of the Liberia NGOs Network, John Jucon, and Prince Kreplah, Chairman of the CSOs WASH Network. These two representatives are working in collaboration with the WaterAid team and are focusing on amplifying WASH issues and lobbying other civil society colleagues to ensure the visibility of WASH in the civil society vision.
