IGF 2016: Draft Outputs of the Best Practice Forums

2 Nov 2016 - 6 Dec 2016


The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is inviting all IGF stakeholders to comment on the draft outputs of the 2016 Best Practice Forums (BPFs) on: Cybersecurity, Gender and Access, Internet Exchange Points (IXPs), and Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). 

BPFs have been developed by the IGF as an intersessional programme aimed to complement other IGF community activities. The outputs of the forums are intended to become robust resources, to serve as inputs into other pertinent forums, and to evolve and grow over time. BPFs offer substantive ways for the IGF community to produce more concrete outcomes. While BPF outcomes have already been useful in informing policy debates, they are also viewed as iterative materials that are not only flexible but also ‘living’ in the sense that they can be updated at any time to accommodate the pace of technological change faced by Internet policymakers.

Comments submitted by the IGF community will be considered during the preparation of the final BPF output documents, to be published after the IGF meeting.
