>> Dear Internet Governance Stakeholders,
>> We are glad to let you know that the IGF has just published all of the
>> tangible outcomes from its intersessional activities conducted in 2016.
>> These outputs include:
>> BPF Gender: Outcome resource 2016
>> (access and gender) & recommendations roadmap
>> (online abuse and gender-based violence);
>> BPF on Internet exchange points (IXPs)
>> BPF on commercial and economic incentives to deploy IPv6
>> BPF Cybersecurity
>> (‘Building Confidence and Security in the use of Information and
>> Communications Technologies (ICTs) through Enhanced Cooperation and
>> Collaboration’); and
>> Policy Options for Connecting and Enabling the Next Billion(s)
>> (Phase II).
>> These resources are the outputs from bottom-up, inclusive, and
>> community-driven activities of the IGF that took place over the course of
>> 2016 (for more information about these initiatives, please see the Notes at
>> the end of this email).
>> The IGF, along with the facilitators and rapporteurs for all of the
>> respective intersessional activities, are grateful for the invaluable
>> support given and time invested in these activities by numerous
>> stakeholders and volunteers. We would also like to recognise the leadership
>> and dedication of the coordinators, facilitators, and lead experts who
>> supported the IGF’s intersessional work over the past year, including Aaron
>> Hughes, Anri van der Spuy, Brian Gutterman, Constance Bommelaer, Douglas
>> Onyango, Izumi Okutani, Jac SM Kee, Maarten Van Horenbeeck, Marco
>> Hogewoning, Markus Kummer, Salanienta Tamanikaiwaimaro, Sumon A. Sabir,
>> Renata Aquino Ribeiro, Segun Olugbile, and Wim Degezelle, among many others.
>> What can you do with the IGF’s intersessional resources?
>> We encourage all stakeholders to share these resources with their
>> respective communities to ensure that the IGF resource outputs also become
>> useful inputs into other processes of relevance to the Internet and its
>> governance in 2017 and beyond.
>> We hope these resources will not only be useful for policymakers and
>> other stakeholders, but will also continue to symbolise the IGF community’s
>> belief that multistakeholder collaboration is fundamental in effectively
>> addressing pertinent Internet policy challenges.
>> What’s next for the IGF’s intersessional activities?
>> All outputs from the IGF’s intersessional activities are intended to be
>> living documents that can be updated at any time. At the first Open
>> Consultations and IGF multistakeholder advisory group (MAG) meeting in
>> March 2017, stakeholders will discuss potential themes for the next cohort
>> of intersessional activities, including what will happen with the 2016 BPFs
>> and their outputs.
>> The IGF Secretariat invites stakeholders to submit written contributions
>> to the current public consultation
>> stock-taking exercise. In these contributions, stakeholders are also
>> welcome to send recommendations and proposed themes for intersessional
>> activities in 2017. Written inputs should be sent to
>> takingstock at intgovforum.org by Friday 27 January.
>> Kind regards,
>> IGF Secretariat
>> About the IGF
>> The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) serves to bring people together from
>> various stakeholder groups as equals in discussions on public policy issues
>> relating to the Internet. While the IGF has no negotiated outcomes, it
>> serves the important function of informing and inspiring those with
>> policymaking power in both public and private sectors.
>> The IGF facilitates a common understanding of how to maximise Internet
>> opportunities and address risks and challenges that arise. One of the ways
>> in which it does so is through its intersessional activities, which are
>> conducted following recommendations
>> <http://unctad.org/meetings/en/SessionalDocuments/a67d65_en.pdf> from
>> the UN CSTD Working Group on Improvements to the IGF and form part of a
>> broader effort by the IGF community to produce more tangible outputs to
>> “enhance the impact of the IGF on global Internet governance and policy”.
>> About the IGF’s intersessional activities
>> The IGF Best Practice Forums (BPFs)
>> continue to offer unique platforms to investigate topical Internet policy
>> challenges by collecting community input and experiences in a flexible and
>> bottom-up manner. Through their substantive outreach efforts and continued
>> calls for input and contributions, the BPFs have already enabled more
>> diverse and varied participation in IGF processes, including from a richer
>> variety of regions and stakeholder groups. By continuously involving new
>> people in their work, the various BPFs also contributed to enlarging the
>> global footprint of the IGF. BPFs worked throughout the year in an open
>> and inclusive way via open mailing lists, regular virtual meetings, and BPF
>> workshops during the 11th IGF meeting in Guadalajara, Mexico, from 6 to 9
>> December 2016.
>> About the BPF Gender
>> The BPF Gender’s second publication, entitled ‘Overcoming Barriers to
>> Enable Women’s Meaningful Internet Access
>> builds on its work in 2015, when it also published an extensive resource
>> on online abuse and gender-based violence. In 2016, the BPF furthermore
>> produced a user-friendly infographic roadmap
>> for addressing online abuse and gender-based violence, based on the key
>> recommendations for diverse stakeholder groups from its 2015 report. The
>> BPF Gender is also partnering with ITU and UN Women’s EQUALS
>> <http://equals.org> partnership, a global initiative aimed at addressing
>> gender inequality, to raise awareness of its outputs. Further details of
>> this collaboration will soon be announced.
>> About the BPF Cybersecurity
>> The 2016 IGF BPF on Cybersecurity
>> built upon the previous work of the IGF CSIRTS and SPAM BPFs. Its work was
>> also guided by the WSIS +10 review process which produced an outcome
>> with a strong focus on "building confidence and security in the use of
>> information and communications technologies", making an IGF BPF related to
>> cybersecurity even more relevant. The 2016 discussions and output report
>> addressed cooperation and collaboration on cybersecurity issues between
>> stakeholder groups as an overarching theme.
>> About the BPF on Internet exchange points (IXPs)
>> The BPF Contributing to the Success and Continued Development of
>> Internet exchange points (IXPs)
>> <http://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/bpf-ixps> collected
>> best current practices that have proven to contribute to building strong
>> and successful IXPs. Exchanging traffic at an IXP has a number of benefits
>> that can contribute to a more affordable, stable, faster and more reliable
>> Internet of a higher quality in a region. The success of an IXP will be
>> measured by its ability to sustainably contribute to the development of its
>> local Internet ecosystem. The BPF on IXPs focused on the management and
>> operation of an IXP and identified factors that can contribute to success.
>> About the BPF IPv6
>> IPv6 is the Internet’s addressing system that was developed to deal with
>> IPv4 exhaustion and to make the Internet future-proof. The fast growing
>> number of networks that already supports IPv6 today proofs that IPv6 is a
>> technically feasible option for business. The BPF Understanding the
>> commercial and economic incentives behind a successful IPv6 deployment
>> <http://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/bpf-ipv6> collected
>> case studies on commercial experiences with IPv6 deployment to better
>> understand challenges and incentives, and provide an opportunity to learn
>> from each other.
>> About Policy Options for Connecting and Enabling the Next Billion(s) -
>> Phase II
>> In 2016, the IGF furthered its seminal work on Policy Options for
>> Connecting and Enabling the Next Billion(s) by investigating challenges
>> and opportunities for addressing and overcoming barriers to meaningful
>> Internet access, promoting meaningful access in diverse contexts and
>> regions, and ensuring that meaningful access also supports the achievement
>> of the UN sustainable development goals. Read the report here
