IGF 2018 - Best Practice Forum Gender and Access - Draft Output (pre-IGF)

INTRODUCTION and INSTRUCTIONS

Best Practice Forum  Gender and Access has functioned in a bottom-up, multi-stakeholder, and community-driven manner to gather stories, experiences, and lessons for producing this pre-IGF Output Document draft. Drawing on the same process, BPF Gender invites all interested to comment and contribute in its draft outputs.

General comments as well as comments on specific parts of the report are welcome. In the later case, please  indicate clearly what section, page or paragraph of the text your comment relates to.

Comments can be submitted by clicking on 'Add new comment' below and will be shown in the column on the right. 

Received public feedback will be taken into account in the final version of the BPF Gender output, which will be published shortly after the IGF meeting.
