IGF 2018 - Policy Options for Connecting and Enabling the Next Billions (CENB): Phase IV - Draft Output (pre-IGF)


Policy Options for Connecting and Enabling the Next Billions (CENB) IV has functioned in a bottom-up, multi-stakeholder, and community-driven manner to gather stories, experiences, and lessons for producing this pre-IGF Output Document draft. Drawing on the same process, CENB IV invites all interested to comment and contribute in its draft outputs.

General comments as well as comments on specific parts of the report are welcome. In the later case, please  indicate clearly what section, page or paragraph of the text your comment relates to.

Received public feedback will be taken into account in the final version of the CENB IV output, which will be published shortly after the IGF meeting.
