Thank Carlos for the detailed update

12 countries out of ~195 UN member states ? One of which I assume that by default is Brazil. 

What criteria is being followed to select the countries ?

Looks like the BR government wants to impose their agenda/policy on every single committee.
> 450 from govs
> 500-550 from non-gov, non-UN stakeholders
> 100 journalists
> 50 IGOs/UN reps

Where these numbers come from ?

> 8. Expected outcomes as success indicators
> - Official launching of a review process of the global IG frameworks/models;

Would you mind to elaborate what do you mean by "official"

> - Development of a set of universally acceptable core of principles for
> global IG;

Who will get the mandate to develop them and from who ?

> - Tentative draft of a global IG model.

Is there any existing model of reference ? And what do you mean by "global" ?

There not just ambitious, the sound unreal.
