IGF 2023: NRIs Preparatory Process

The NRIs are collaboratively working on developing the 2023 work plan, building on the last year's annual workplan
The preparatory process is implemented through a bottom-up, consultative process among all NRIs. This process is usually carried out through virtual meetings, surveys and open, written consultations through the NRIs mailing list. The final decisions are based on a consensus.
