The United Nations Secretary-General, Mr. António Guterres, convened the High-Level Panel on ‎Digital Cooperation to advance proposals to strengthen cooperation in the digital space among ‎Governments, the private sector, civil society, international organizations, academia, the technical ‎community and other relevant stakeholders.‎
The Panel submitted the final report to the Secretary-General on 10 June 2019. During the ‎launch, the Secretary-General called for a broad consultation process on the topics covered in ‎the report. ‎ This session will ‎reflect on the HLPDC Report recommendations, with special focus on the Recommendation 5 ‎and the proposed model for global digital cooperation called: The Internet Governance Forum Plus ‎‎(IGF Plus). ‎
This is expected to be a substantive and concrete discussion with the IGF community and NOT a panel session.
Co-moderators:  Ambassador Benedicto Fonseca (Brazil and former Chair Enhanced Cooperation WG) and Lynn St. Amour (IGF MAG Chair).
AGENDA: The session will consist of three parts:
Part 1: SETTING THE SCENE.  Opening remarks from the Session Chair and USG Fabrizio Hochschild (as representative of the UNSG and the HLPDC effort).
Part 2: DEVELOPING MESSAGES FROM THE IGF COMMUNITY.  IGF stakeholders will share their views with the aim to develop messages from the IGF community as input into the overall process. The basis for the interaction will be the HLPDC report's Recommendation 5 - Global Digital Cooperation, as well as the IGF Plus model.  
Note: there will be 4 microphones (one for each SH group) as well as online facilitation in order to rotate comments across the stakeholder groups.  Please bear this in mind and sit in your stakeholder group to facilitate access to the microphones.
Part 3: SUMMARY OF KEY MESSAGES to be conveyed. 
a) Assigned rapporteurs will work in conjunction with the moderators and a Secretariat-provided resource to synthesise the session messages 
b) Messages from the IGF community to be conveyed into the SG’s process on Digital Cooperation.
