Hi everybody

Thanks. Parminder

Nitin Desai
Special Advisor to the Secretary-General United Nations 

Dear Mr Desai

Wishing you a happy and fulfilling 2007!

The Civil Society Internet Governance Caucus (CS-IGC) would like to
congratulate you for the very successful first meeting of the Internet
Governance Forum. A good amount of the credit for this goes to your personal
leadership, and that of your advisory team, as well as to the hard work put
in by the secretariat.

We are writing to you with reference to the UN Secretary-General's brief to
your office to begin informal consultations towards a process of 'enhanced
cooperation' on international public policy issues related to the Internet.

The CS-IGC would appreciate an update on progress and news of the current
state of play with respect to "enhanced cooperation." In particular, we
would very much welcome information on

 (a) any concrete measures taken so far, e.g., any discussions and
consultations that may have been held with governments and other
stakeholders on the substance and modalities of 'enhanced cooperation', and,

 (b) the plans for involving civil society in the process as per the clear
mandate in paragraph 71 of the Tunis Agenda.

 We would also like to express our commitment and desire to be involved in
any such processes that may be underway or planned.

Thank you.
