The field of cyber capacity building (CCB) is rapidly maturing, a trend that is supported by the mushrooming of actors, projects, initiatives, and networks. The GFCE, as the multi-stakeholder platform for CCB, must evolve to support and address the needs of the Community while reducing fragmentation of efforts. Towards 2023, the GFCE is therefore focused on coordination for the future, to leverage and streamline existing efforts, avoid duplication, strengthen global cooperation, and foster knowledge sharing. Central to the GFCE’s efforts in improving coordination will be i) reinforcing a demand-driven approach through expansion with regional (locally based) liaisons and offices and ii) mobilizing resources for CCB through the organization of the Global Conference on Cyber Capacity Building (GC3B) in 2023.

The GFCE Annual Meeting 2022 in the Hague brought the GFCE Community together in person for the first time in almost three years to reflect on the GFCE’s developments and activities, explore the GFCE’s coordination role in identified areas (e.g. gender inclusivity, UN processes, regional efforts), and exchange ideas or updates on key topics. In line with previous GFCE Annual Meetings, an open, informal, and interactive setting was established throughout all three days. This year theme was: “Coordination for the future”.
