Each issue strand of the Implementation Conference process is guided by an Issue Advisory Group (IAG).
The IAGs are multi-stakeholder, balanced by stakeholders, with 5-10 members each, appointed by Stakeholder Forum.
Members represent relevant stakeholder groups and/or are key organisations in stakeholder networks at the international level.
Our goal is to make the IC preparatory process as interactive as possible: Keep the amount and length of preparatory documents to a minimum, rather arrange direct communication via telephone conversations and telephone conferences. The Issue Coordinator will be responsible for minuting direct communications and incorporate comments into the 'rolling issue paper' and developing lists of IC participants.
The overall task of the Issue Advisory Group is to guide the development of one of the issue strands of the IC process, regarding the development of possible IC outcomes and identifying IC participants.
