PNMA Multistakeholder Working Group

The Policy Network on Meaningful Access (PNMA)'s driving force is a community of diverse stakeholders aiming to contribute with their ‎expertise and experience. All interested stakeholders can join an open dedicated mailing list and take active participation through regular meetings and others means of collaboration. ‎
The community is continuously consulted on the thematic focus of the PNMA, its methodology and the so far ‎produced outputs.
Within the PNMA is a Multistakeholder Working Group of experts which ‎supports transforming community’s expressed views into concrete actions, such as outputs and actionable next steps. ‎

Statement of Purpose

We have come a long way with local, national and global efforts towards universal connectivity and meaningful access, from a wide number of organizations across all stakeholder groups. However, the implementation of policies around meaningful access remains challenging.

Therefore, the PNMA MWG has decided not to concentrate its work on mapping or definition tracks since it is already covered in other fora. We will build on those work from a number of current and past efforts. The MWG agreed to explore concrete actions the members of the PNMA could support so that the main outcome of the PNMA is not only a set of recommendations.
