> Dear members,
> The outcome document of the United Nations General Assembly’s ten-year
review of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in 2015
included a direction for the Chair of the Commission on Science and
Technology for Development (CSTD) to "establish a working group to develop
recommendations on how to further implement enhanced cooperation as
envisioned in the Tunis Agenda” . This will continue work done by an
earlier CSTD Working Group on Enhanced Cooperation, that was active from
2013-2014. and current CSTD Chair, Peter Major of Hungary,
has indicated that he will establish the new working group in a similar
fashion, with 20 UN Member States and 5 representatives from each of the
four identified stakeholder groups (business, civil society,
intergovernmental organizations, the technical & academic community).
> In this sense, the IGC will be receiving candidates who are interested to
be considered as a posible representant of the civil societe. As we did
before for the MAG process, I will be encharge to presente the short list
to the CSCG nominations committe.
> Independent Civil Society experts (i.e. those who are not nominated by a
civil society network or other community are welcome to send
self-nominations directly to the CSCG nomcom (email address:
noncom06 at internetgov-cs.org)
> How the nomination format should be?
> Nominations should include a short bio of one paragraph, one paragraph of
motivation to be a civil society representative to the WG, one paragraph
describing substantive proposals or a vision on “how to further implement
enhanced cooperation as envisioned in the Tunis Agenda”, and one paragraph
describing experience or qualifications to represent civil society on the
WG. Name, gender, regional/geographical, as well as any appropriate
affiliation information and contact information should be included as well.
Proficiency in English is necessary for communications within the Working
> Deadline: 14 March (23:59 UTC)
> Details of the UNCATAD call: available here
> Important!: I as have sent in a previous mail, from the 15 March and
until the CSCG noncom establish the final list of the candidates to
presenst to WG, since I am willing to present my name to the CSCG, I will
not represesnt IGC in the selection of the final candidates but Deidre
will. This is obvious because I have personal interest that cannot be mixed
with this process, in order to protect transparency.
