> Hi people,
> This is my quick summary of yesterday's meeting of the local organizing
> group (LOG) for the BR meeting. This summary is basically oriented to
> civil society but may be useful to all stakeholders. Covers basically
> the structure of the committees and includes some other useful info.
> I do hope it answers several of the many questions we are receiving.
> fraternal regards
> 1. Co-chairs of the BR Meeting
> This is a no-brainer: the BR Meeting will be chaired by Virgilio Almeida
> (current chair of CGI.br, and member of Brazil's Ministry of Science,
> Technology and Innovation), and Fadi Chehadé.
> 2. High Level Multistakeholder Committee
> The HLMC will be responsible for overseeing the political articulations
> and for encouraging the participation of the international community.
> It will be composed of government representatives of 12 countries
> (precise list still being established by the BR government) plus 12
> non-govs, and two representatives of UN agencies to be chosen by the
> UNSG. The 12 non-govs include four of each non-gov stakeholder (civil
> society, academia/techies, private sector). All of the non-gov, non-UN
> stakeholders' names will be brought to the LOG by 1Net. So the HLC will
> be composed of 26 people.
> The HLMC will have four co-chairs, keeping the multistakeholder balance.
> One of the co-chairs will be Brazil's Minister of Communications Paulo
> So civil society needs to indicate to 1Net Steering Committee four
> high-level reps as soon as possible.
> 3. Executive Multistakeholder Committee
> The EMC will be responsible for organizing the event, including the
> discussion and implementation of the agenda, and the selection of the
> participants and the various stakeholders' proposals. The crucial part
> of the preparation process resides here, in close coordination with the
> Logistics Committee, so people selected for the EMC ought to make
> themselves readily available for this challenge.
> The LOG has already selected the eight Brazilian members of the EMC.
> There will be four co-chairs as well, and names already appointed are
> Demi Getschko (CEO of NIC.br) and Raúl Echeberría (to be confirmed, CEO
> of LACNIC). A representative of an international agency will be
> appointed as well (by the coordinating body of the UN agencies) to
> Like the HLMC, non-gov, non-UN members of the EMC will be brought to the
> LOG by 1Net.
> For the EMC civil society needs to indicate to 1Net Steering Committee
> two names as soon as possible.
> 4. Logistics and Organizational Committee
> The LOC will be co-chaired by Hartmut Glaser, executive secretary of
> CGI.br with proven expertise in coordinating the organization of
> national and international events. Another co-chair will be indicated by
> 5. Government Advisory Committee
> This is in the hands of the BR government who acts as a facilitator and
> coordinator. Two co-chairs will be indicated. This committee will be
> open to any government who wishes to act in an advisory capacity.
> 6. Funding
> NIC.br will cover about 50% of the meeting's overall costs. The balance
> will be share by international participants/sponsors. Contributions from
> ICANN and ISOC are expected.
> 7. Participation
> The meeting is to be held at Hotel Transamérica, in São Paulo, fairly
> close to NIC.br headquarters (see attached map). The basic distribution
> of participants is envisioned approximately as:
> 450 from govs
> 500-550 from non-gov, non-UN stakeholders
> 100 journalists
> 50 IGOs/UN reps
> Inviting participants, or receiving and approving participation
> requests, is one of the tasks of the EMC.
> 8. Expected outcomes as success indicators
> - Official launching of a review process of the global IG
> - Development of a set of universally acceptable core of principles for
> global IG;
> - Tentative draft of a global IG model.
> My personal comment: these ambitious outcomes of course involve a lot of
> preparatory process work, especially by the Executive Committee. This is
> why we need to conclude the nominations asap in order to start the real
> work towards the meeting.
