The Internet Governance Forum was one of the major outcomes of the original WSIS, as outlined in the Tunis Agenda. The IGF mandate was also renewed for another 10 years during the recently completed WSIS+10 High-Level Event in December.
This information session will gather the global, multistakeholder WSIS community to reflect upon the 2015 IGF work, including the WSIS+10 Outcomes that renewed the IGF mandate for another 10 years. The session will also examine the role and potential impact of Internet Governance, ICTs and Internet on the recently adopted United Nations Sustainable Development Agenda and related goals (SDGs). Finally, the session will also look forward to the 2016 IGF in Mexico, and will allow stakeholders to ask questions and share information about how they can get involved in IGF intersessional activities.
