NRIs Collaborative Sessions are interactive sessions organised by a number of national and regional IGFs (NRIs) from different regions on a topic of mutual interest. All topics are defined based on the open, consultative, bottom-up process across all NRIs.

This topic is organized by the following NRIs:
  1. Malawi IGF: Bram Fudzulani
  2. Lebanon IGF (possibility for online participation from Zeina Bou Harb?)
  3. Colombia IGF: Julián Casasbuenas G.
  4. Haiti IGF: Montreuil Kindy Vereus
  5. Portugal IGF: Ana Neves

Policy Questions to be discussed:
  1. How do we ensure that Internet governance processes are truly inclusive? What needs to be done to enhance the capacity of different actors (and especially those in developing and least-developed countries) to actively contribute to such processes and whose responsibility is it?
  2. What tools or strategies could be developed to promote (better) Internet access for women and girls, older people, people living with disabilities, refugees and other disadvantaged groups?
  3. How can we better utilize primary and secondary schools and tertiary educational facilities to promote and to deliver on digital literacy to their communities and should digital literacy be the fourth pillar of education, alongside reading, writing and maths?
  4. Regarding to Internet services in developing and least developed countries, is there any room to make improvements in current commercial models and or initiatives like community networks, in order to increase connected people in our communities?
