Speaker: Casey Cronin to present: Angel Hsu Intro (5 mins)
o Update on IGST and Climate works
o Gather more input from what comes from the iGST community.
· Timelines and benchmarks
· First submission is February 22
· We are structuring the iGST submission loosely around: Process recommendations Insights regarding guiding questions from the Non-paper Data and analytic contributions
· Is this focused on just national party actors or are non-party actors as well?
· We are thinking about "non-party actors" but mostly in national contexts. That is, submissions from NGOs, think tanks, civil society, etc. but not meaning subnational/corporate/international cooperative initiatives
· So I think this community has a very important role for submission about sub-national, corporate, international cooperative initiatives, etc.
