Policy Network on Environment (PNE)

Join our Open Mailing List!

Short Introduction to the PNE

The IGF 2021 features an intersessional workstream focused on intersections between environment and ‎‎digitalisation processes, called the Policy Network on Environment (PNE). The vision of the PNE is a world in which digitalization is used as a force for good, and where progress is made towards the UN 2030 Agenda's climate and environmental goals. The PNE's work is spearheaded by a Multistakeholder Working Group (MWG), whose primary aim is to publish a report by December 2021 containing concrete, actionable policy recommendations. The MWG Meetings are open to everyone interested.
