Online discussion:  IGF intersessional work now and in the future: Best Practice Forums and Dynamic Coalitions

Date: Wednesday 23 September 2020, 12:00-14:45 UTC

Reflections on how Best Practice Forums<https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/best-practice-forums-bpfs> (BPFs) and Dynamic Coalitions<https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/dynamic-coalitions> (DCs) have evolved and what they have achieved since their inception. BPFs have produced a substantial body of work and the range, and depth, of topics covered by DCs is extensive. In 2020 an IGF MAG-supported “BPF on BPFs<https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/bpf-on-bpfs>" has done a study of BPFs and is proposing suggestions for how to strengthen them in the future. During the session the authors of this report will share learnings and invite feedback. DC and BPF coordinators will talk about their experiences, sharing what has worked well as well as how they think the model can be improved. The session will also explore how these existing ‎intersessional modalities relate to modalities proposed for the IGF-plus ‎model and consider how they can be developed and optimised in the context of an evolving IGF. Discussion will include reflection on how these ‎intersessional modalities can collaborate with one another and with NRIs building ‎on the Secretariat proposals for collaborative mechanisms between BPFs and NRIs ‎developed in 2020.
