Dear Sadaf,

Congrats for this initiative and thank you for sharing. It's great to see
further proliferation of national IGFs across the world. I'm assuming this
is on the radar of the IGF Secretariat? It's important for these
initiatives to feed back into the global IGF and there are a number of IGF
MAG members have been actively involved in making this link more relevant
and robust. My personal experience in national IGFs is limited to the UK
example, but I know there are others on the MAG who would be more than
happy to provide guidance and advice. Let me know if you would like me to
forward this info to the MAG list.

Best and good luck!
