> Call for Travel Support to attend the 14th annual meeting of the IGF
> The mandate of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) calls for
> strengthening and enhancing of the stakeholder engagement from
> developing ‎countries. It also calls for the Forum to contribute to
> building capacity for Internet governance in ‎developing countries,
> drawing fully on local sources of knowledge and expertise‎.
> During the 13th IGF, the United Nations Secretary-General has called for
> action to increase inclusiveness in the IGF processes. The
> Secretary-General underlined that the IGF must increase its efforts to
> draw upon the “weak and missing voices” into the IGFs work. It was also
> called for a broader multidisciplinary approach, to involve experts not
> traditionally involved in the IGF processes. The community also echoed
> for more inclusion and diversity in the IGF's participation spectrum.
> For these reasons, the IGF 2019 Host Country, Government of Germany,
> will support eligible candidates from developing countries to
> participate at the 14th annual meeting of the IGF from 25 - 29 November
> in Berlin, German. It will also support the participation of the MAG
> members at the MAG meetings and the IGF annual meeting.

> participating at the IGF 2019.
> Preference will be given to candidates from underrepresented groups,
> such as: ‎women, indigenous people, persons with disabilities, older
> persons, youth.
> Those requesting partial funding will have preference over others,
> should all ‎criteria be met.‎
> Candidates engaged in programme sessions (e.g. co-organisers, speakers,
> moderators) will be evaluated on a priority and case-by-case basis.
> The IGF Secretariat will also collaborate with the national and regional
> IGF initiatives for conducting a bottom-up process to identify eligible
> candidates that could contribute to their local communities and the IGF
> 2019 process with their expertise.
