Header In 2021, the Dynamic Coalition Coordination Group (DCCG) and the IGF Secretariat are developing a paper to document Dynamic Coalitions’ (DCs) experiences and explore their role within the IGF ecosystem. As part of this work, we are running a public survey to collect input from the IGF community on how they see DCs and their contributions to IGF processes. We invite members of the Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) and the broader IGF community to respond to this survey by filling out the form below by 25 July 2021. Note: If you have an IGF Community account, you can load your profile data in the form below and even keep a draft before submitting. (If you do not have an IGF Community account yet, you can create one now and re-access this form – and any other in the future – with your profile data).

DCs visibility and activities 7. On a scale from 1 (not at all) to 10 (very familiar), how familiar are you with Dynamic Coalitions (e.g. what they are, how they work in general)? Questions 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Select 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Would you like to comment on your response? 8. On a scale from 1 (not clear at all) to 10 (very clear and comprehensive), how clear and comprehensive do you find the information available on the IGF website about DCs, their work, their role in the IGF ecosystem, and how to join them? Questions 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Select 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Would you like to comment on your response? E.g. Is there anything about the work of DCs that you would like to understand better? Do you have any suggestions on how to improve the way in which DCs are presented online? 9. On a scale from 1 (not at all) to 10 (very familiar), how familiar are you with the outputs of Dynamic Coalitions? Questions 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Select 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Some DCs produce output documents in the form of papers, reports, studies, etc. These are usually presented at the DCs sessions at the annual IGF and published on the DC webpages. Would you like to comment on your response? 10. DCs usually hold individual sessions and a joint main session at IGF annual meetings. Have you ever attended any such session? I have attended at least one DC individual session I have attended at least one DC main session No, I have never attended any of these, although I am aware of them This is the first time when I hear of such sessions What did you find most interesting/useful in the individual DC session(s)? If you were to make some recommendations on how to improve similar sessions in the future, what would those be? (Recommendations could cover issues such as promotion and visibility of the session, content, follow-up, etc.) What did you find most interesting/useful in the DC main session(s)? If you were to make some recommendations on how to improve similar sessions in the future, what would those be? (Recommendations could cover issues such as promotion and visibility of the session, content, follow-up, etc.) DCs and the future of the IGF 11. In his Roadmap for Digital Cooperation, the UN Secretary-General has made reference to a need for the IGF to: (a) be more responsive and relevant to current digital issues; (b) have a more focused agenda; (c) have more actionable outcomes. Do you think DCs could contribute to the implementation of these points? If so, how? One example could be to use DCs as expert think tanks or research teams for specific issues. 12. The Roadmap also calls for better integrating the IGF programme and intersessional policy development work. Likewise, the MAG WG-Strategy supports the integration of intersessional activities more closely with the programme of the annual IGF event and with the longer term, multi-year strategy of the IGF, and vice-versa. What role do you believe DCs should play in implementing these recommendations, while preserving their independence and goals? 13. Do you have any other suggestions on how DCs could contribute to a strengthened and more visible IGF (for instance, in the context of the proposed IGF Plus model)?
