The Internet Governance Forum USA (IGF-USA) is a multistakeholder effort to illuminate issues and cultivate constructive discussions about the future of the Internet. It provides a domestic forum in the US to engage civil society, government, technologists, research scientists, industry and academia, helping to create partnerships, coalitions and dialogues that demonstrate best practices and help move policy forward.
Regional and national IGF meetings are taking place globally, including gatherings in East Africa, Europe (EuroDig), Latin America, the Caribbean, West Africa, Spain and Italy. These events are organized on a local level and have no formal ties to the global IGF, however the UN’s IGF Secretariat recognizes the importance of the regional and national events and reports from these meetings are shared at the international gatherings.
