This session will bring perspectives of communities gathered around the national, regional and youth IGF processes (NIRs). Delegated representatives of the NRIs will provide concrete cases of existing practices, challenges and already implemented or under implementation action plans and activities in the areas agreed by the NRIs.

The session discussion will illustrate existing challenges across developed and developing countries, as well as vulnerable groups through concrete cases of practices.
It will showcase the impact of the newly emerging technologies on various countries and regions, and related implications these have on inclusion, security and human rights. Concrete case-studies will be presented and actions and activities identified that are affecting change at the national levels.

More specifically, the session will address four (4) guiding policy questions to which concrete inputs will be addressed from the perspective of the NRIs discussions:
  1. How can (existing, new and emerging) digital technologies, support engagement of vulnerable groups at the national and regional levels? 
  2. How to ensure safe and secure online conditions for utilization of digital technologies? Can we trust these? 
  3. Are emerging digital technologies posing risks to human rights? How to prevent and tackle harmful consequences?
  4. How can we suggest policy options to enhance access to the least developed countries to emerging technologies?
