Hi all,

IMHO, think the secretariat should make the outputs available in other UN
supported languages.

> 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

> 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
