¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 For the purposes of having continuous and effective communication between the IGF initiative, other NRIs, and the global IGF, it is recommended to have a dedicated focal point within the initiative that will act as a liaison between the initiative and other stakeholders. This can be one or more persons, deepening on the final decision of the initiative’s core organizing team.
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 The IGF Secretariat keeps the list of all these contact persons, giving them a technical term of a coordinator, which is a functional term used within the planning processes of the NRI’s collaboration. It is not intended to replace any official terms or appointments by the NRIs for their own operational purposes. As emphasized above, the NRIs coordinators act as liaisons between the global IGF, the NRIs network and their initiatives. This means that all updates about the individual NRIs are being regularly sent to the Secretariat and to the NRIs by the Coordinator. Also, the Secretariat is communicating with the NRIs through their Coordinators, that are passing the messages further to their community.
¶ 4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 After being established, the initiatives are advised to decide among themselves who will be assigned with this role and inform the IGF Secretariat to update the database of all NRIs coordinators contacts.
