4.     Creating an enabling environment for the development of local content

5.     Best practices for online child protection


You can also explore resources for each issue (lead experts, background documentation, etc.), available on the IGF Best Practices homepage: http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/best-practice-forums


We encourage you to take an active part in this opportunity to shape concrete outcomes of IGF 2014!  


About the process:

Over the past weeks, communities gathering experts from government, business, Civil Society, and the academic and technical communities, have been working through open mailing lists and online virtual meetings on IGF Best Practices.


The discussion was documented by independent experts that will feed into five 90 minute Forums in Istanbul and that will in turn report into a Best Practices Main Session.  A summary booklet on each Best Practices theme is the intended outcome. The drafts are open for comments until 5 September and will be published after the IGF 2014 meeting.
