Following several rounds of open consultations, the Leadership Panel is a response to the Secretary-General's Roadmap for Digital Cooperation<https://undocs.org/A/74/821>, which calls for strengthening of the IGF through, among other aspects, ''creating a strategic and empowered multi-stakeholder high-level body, building on the experience of the existing multi-stakeholder advisory group, which would address urgent issues, coordinate follow-up action on Forum discussions and relay proposed policy approaches and recommendations from the Forum to the appropriate normative and decision-making forums.''
Nominations can be submitted through the online form<https://www.intgovforum.org/en/content/leadership-panel-nomination-2022> on the IGF website or on official letterhead by sending an attachment through email to mhlbnominations at intgovforum.org<mailto:mhlbnominations at intgovforum.org>.
