As an observer to the MAG meeting this week, we were also invited to
contribute to the survey on the PN and I took the opportunity and
responded as follows...transparency here from a member of this list / DC

Subject: Consultations on paragraph 93 - survey reponse
Priority should be about international risk management in times of crisis.
This could be to support immediate connectivity and ensuing issues for
events such as the covid19 andemic and associated ICT issues, a tsunami
etc. A focus on UN emergency operations communications for citizens and UN
SDGs long term as new normals come in to existence post event...bridging
the digital gap in times of crisis, for fast relief to reach a new normal .
The IGF Dynamic Coalitions are well placed bottom up groups to identify
emerging risks and provide observations for uptake for discussion. DCs
should be consulted annually in a systematic manner and an open call to all
DCs be made so that cross cutting issues can be considered.
Consideration should be given also to development of sustainable circular
economies for technology with low waste and participation from local
nonprofit groups for cost effective local solutions.
Up to 75 members of two year terms each with a good balance of sectors,
stakeholders, regions, age and gender. IGF dynamic coalitions should also
have a seat.
Should be virtual meetings so that there can be affordable access.
Quality access is key to meets the UN SDGs in the new world era.
