These resources are the outputs from bottom-up, inclusive, and community-driven activities of the IGF that took place over the course over several annual IGF cycles.

What can you do with the IGF’s BPF resources?

We encourage all stakeholders to share these resources with their respective communities to ensure that the IGF resource outputs also become useful inputs into other processes of relevance to the Internet and its governance in 2018 and beyond.

We hope these resources will not only be useful for policymakers and other stakeholders, but will also continue to symbolise the IGF community’s belief that multistakeholder collaboration is fundamental in effectively addressing pertinent Internet policy challenges.
