Building a more effective architecture for digital cooperation
There are significant gaps in global digital cooperation, and digital technology issues are too often low on political agendas. Even where there has been cooperation, it is frequently fragmented and lacks tangible outcomes or sound follow-up processes. As a starting point, the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) must be strengthened, in order to make it more responsive and relevant to current digital issues.
In line with the key recommendations of the Roadmap, discussions are ongoing, including with the IGF community and efforts underway to strengthen the IGF. On this, the Office works closely with the Department for Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations.
