Sustainable Development: Theme Proposal for IGF New Delhi

By Tony Vetter, Don MacLean, Heather Creech on February 7, 2008
In response to the request for comments and views on the November 2007 Rio de Janeiro meeting of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), and suggestions regarding the format and content of the December 2008 New Delhi meeting, this paper proposes that sustainable development be considered as a theme for the New Delhi meeting, and that one of its plenary sessions be devoted to "exploring the linkages between Internet governance and sustainable development." This document is based on IISD's submission to the February 26, 2008, stock-taking session of the Internet Governance Forum in Geneva.
