Por: Administrador August 27, 2012

August 29-30, 2012


The Caribbean Internet Governance Forum (CIGF) is a multi-country, multi-stakeholder forum initiated by the CTU and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat in 2005 to coordinate a regional approach to Internet Governance. The forum has since met annually and the primary product of its work has been the formulation of a Caribbean Internet Governance Policy Framework issued in 2009. This policy framework is a guide for regional stakeholders on the Caribbean vision, priority areas and recommendations for Internet Governance. The 8th CIGF will address areas of high priority for further policy development and initiate the work to appropriately update and keep current the policy framework.
