IGF 2024: NRIs Preparatory Process

The NRIs are collaboratively working towards achieving the agreed objectives available in their 2024 work plan, building on last year's work.  
The preparatory process is implemented through a bottom-up, consultative process among all NRIs. This process is usually done through virtual meetings, surveys and open, written consultations through the NRIs mailing list. The final decisions are based on a consensus.
