Dear Colleagues,

IGF Policy Options<http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/policy-options-for-connection-the-next-billion> and Best Practices<http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/best-practice-forums> are part of an effort this year for the IGF to develop more tangible outputs, supporting broader tracks (e.g. SDGs, WSIS+10) while leveraging the global network of IGFs that are held on all continents.

During last week's Open Consultations and MAG meeting, the IGF community agreed on the draft skeleton of the "IGF Policy Options for Connecting the Next Billion", available <https://docs.google.com/document/d/1aogcq3iqzBRKTRSQlGAuSRvMi8c4rF1GgASoK5vhQbk/edit> here<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1aogcq3iqzBRKTRSQlGAuSRvMi8c4rF1GgASoK5vhQbk/edit>.

ASK: All interested stakeholders are invited to:

  *   Join the open-ended editorial group formed to develop the document ahead of IGF Brazil by signing-up to this mailing list<http://mail.intgovforum.org/mailman/listinfo/intersessional_2015_intgovforum.org>.
  *   Send additional background contributions by using this form<http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/policy-options-for-connection-the-next-billion/contributions>, or by writing to gutterman at un.org by 3 Oct. (contributions from national/regional IGFs and Best Practices Forums are welcome on an ongoing basis). They will feed into the next version of the document and will all appear with due attribution on the IGF website<http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/policy-options-for-connection-the-next-billion/list-of-contributions>.

Next steps:
The IGF Secretariat will be working in the coming weeks on editing the introduction and developing the various sections of the skeleton on the basis of contributions received. A new draft will be made available for the consideration of the open-ended editorial group around 21 Sept.

Further information on the methodology and the timeline can be found here<http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/policy-options-for-connection-the-next-billion#about>.

Please disseminate this call for background contributions throughout your networks.

Thank you and best regards,

Constance Bommelaer
