CSTD consultation on improvements to the Internet Governance Forum
Working group on IGF
The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) has asked the Commission on Science and Technology for Development (CSTD) to carry out a consultation on improvements to the Internet Governance Forum (IGF). To this end the CSTD was invited to establish a Working Group on IGF to "seek, compile and review from all Member States and all other stakeholders on improvements to the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), in line with the mandate set out in the Tunis Agenda". (ECOSOC resolution 2010/2)
Timeline of working group meetings and consultations
The Hon. Sherry Ayittey, Minister of Environment, Science and Technology of Ghana, the current Chair of the CSTD, delegated the task of establishing the CSTD Working Group on IGF to Mr. Frederic Riehl, vice Chair of the CSTD.
Mr Riehl plans to organize two meetings (December 2010 and February 2011) before transmitting a report to the CSTD. In addition to these meetings, consultations will be held to allow all stakeholders to contribute to the process. As part of this consultation, the Vice-Chair of the CSTD published an online questionnaire on 9 November 2010 followed by an open face-to-face meeting in Geneva, Switzerland on 24 November 2010.

Questa sintesi non deve essere considerato un sondaggio rappresentativo.Piuttosto, i contributi molto ricco e informato dovrebbe essere considerato come il punto di partenza di un processo di consultazione che dà più "cibo per la mente" e invitare ulteriori discussioni.
