Happy new week to everyone.

Last week I sent a doodle poll to all members of WGCO to secure consensus
on our 1st virtual meeting, but unfortunately there are some who are unable
to access the Doodle, others complained on technical errors and difficulty
in accessing the doodle poll. Consequently, the doodle poll received input
from very few members and the votes received are not enough to have wider
consultations or consensus on the meeting.

While I deeply appreciate everyone who took time off to vote on the Doodle,
it is obvious that we have to postpone the meeting considering the
technical errors (probably from my side,) the short notice and the MAG
meeting coming up tomorrow.

I have consulted Chengetai earlier for support prior to sending the doodle,
unfortunately I was informed that Secretariat is in shortage of staff and
their hands are full presently, but they will offer WebEx support.

Therefore, in the light of present circumstances, I’m suggesting the

1.     Parallel hosting of physical meeting of the WGCO during the next MAG
physical meeting in Geneva with opportunity to remotely participate in the

2.     Furthering consultation or interaction among members on the proposed
meeting agenda. (re-copied below) through WGCO email thread and skype
chatting prior to this physical meeting.

3.     Perhaps conduct a skype voice meeting on 25th of May @ 11PM Geneva

We are open to further suggestion.

*Proposed 1st Meeting Agenda (Updated)*

1.     Brief on the revised ToR.

2.      Harmonise on the following Priorities

·         WGCO support for enhancing IGF donor funding

distribution to networks & feedback mechanism.

·         Communication approach for sharing past and current IGF outcomes

and value presence.

3.     Template for Multi-year integrated action plan

4.     Remote Participation Mechanism & diversification

5.     Assignment of roles and responsibilities.
