The upcoming fourth annual Internet Governance Forum (IGF) meeting November 2009 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt marks the start of an evaluation process of the five-year mandate of the forum, ending in 2010. IISD prepared the following response to seven questions posed by the Secretariat soliciting inputs for a synthesis document to support the UN Secretary General's formal consultation with IGF participants. IISD is broadly supportive of the IGF and has affirmed that the IGF should renew its mandate for a second five-year term.
