Today, there are more than 30 information repositories on Internet Governance, pursuing the common goal of improving access to information.
How can we develop of a sustainable basis for a collaboration between online observatory networks, to increase sustainability in a longer-term perspective? What are the main areas and pending needs of cooperation between observatories?
These are the main questions tackled by Federation Roadmap for Internet Governance repositories. The Global Internet Policy Observatory Tool is as an automated tool that is meant as a service provider for both final stakeholders and other observatories. Therefore to increase the sustainability and effectiveness of the project, GIPO aims to provide a framework to enable cooperation among platforms and by that, to build bridges among observatories and avoid the risk of parallel redundant efforts.
