Subject: [NRIs List] Hybrid IGF 2021 Thematic Focus

Dear Colleagues,

The Secretariat would like to update on the current status of deciding on the IGF 2021 thematic focus.

Based on the responses to the call for thematic issues, the MAG advised that the 2021 IGF process, including its 16th annual IGF meeting, focuses on the following:

2021 IGF Main focus areas (outcome-focused) with 60% estimated time allocation:

  *   Economic & Social Inclusion and Human Rights
  *   Universal Access & Meaningful Connectivity

2021 IGF Emerging and Cross-cutting issues (discussion-driven) with 40% estimated time allocation:

  *   Emerging regulation: market structure, content, data and consumer/users rights regulation
  *   Environmental sustainability and climate change
  *   Inclusive IG ecosystems and digital cooperation
  *   Trust, security, stability

Next steps
In the next days, the MAG will define the sub-themes, issues and policy questions to be featured within each of the above-listed issue areas. This will help shape the call for session proposals to be issued toward the end of April 2021 (see the draft timeline<https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/index.php?q=filedepot_download/11138/2394>).
