Welcome to the United Nations | Department of Economic and Social Affairs

The concept of Dynamic Coalitions and a number of coalitions were established as a result of the first IGF meeting in Athens. These coalitions are informal, issue-specific groups comprising members of various stakeholder groups.

Most Dynamic Coalitions allow collaboration of anyone interested in contributing to their discussions.


Dynamic Coalition Requirements - Information for Coordinators

*To establish a dynamic coalition, initiators are advised to first hold a meeting and express the need for creating their coalition. They are required to make a written statement which should outline:

  1. The need for the dynamic coalition
  2. An action plan
  3. A mailing list
  4. The contact person(s)
  5. A list of representatives from at least three stakeholder groups

It is also recommended that the support of stakeholder groups in creating the coalition is illustrated. Whilst not compulsory, setting up a webpage or a blog is highly recommended.

If you are planning to create a dynamic coalition, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The Secretariat will carefully review the request and will inform you of the result.

*Once established, coalitions will be asked to submit a yearly report or thematic paper to the Secretariat as an update of their activities. Such a report is required to be considered eligible for an individual meeting slot at annual IGFs. 

*To stay informed of the DC community's activities, including coordination activities, subscribe to our mailing list

*Dynamic Coalition documents are available on the IGF Review Platform.
