2. How can governments and other stakeholders promote the developmental aspects of the Internet?
3. What are the challenges and opportunities?" 

Accordingly, all stakeholders are invited to provide their answers through the link provided further below.

Useful information and instructions

Information on the Online Open Consultations

The online open consultations are held throughout the period between two successive meetings of the CWG-Internet. This process gives an opportunity to all stakeholders from all nations to express their views with regards to the topic(s) under discussion.
As responses to the online open consultations can contain lengthy attachments, short summaries can prove useful to readers and facilitate the discussion process during the physical open consultation meeting (see below).
herefore, submitters are kindly requested to additionally provide a short summary of their response (max. 3 paragraphs), as part of their submission.

Information on the Physical Open Consultations

A physical open consultation meeting is organized 30 days after the end of the online open consultation. Discussions during the physical consultation meeting are based on the responses received during the online consultation process, which are consolidated in a single document by the ITU Secretariat. During this physical meeting, respondents to the online consultation have the opportunity to present their submitted views and to have a fruitful discussion with the other participants, including Members of the CWG-Internet. For those not in the position to participate on site, remote participation is also available upon request.
