Asia Pacific School on Internet Governance (APSIG) is a regional School of Internet Governance working towards raising awareness and capacity building within the Asia Pacific region. It's a yearly event that brings in Internet Leaders from the Asia Pacific region for a Training of Trainers program.
Building on the United Nations (UN) Millennium Development Goals, and the mandate given at the Second Phase of the World Summit on the Information Society in Tunis in 2005, the IGF (Internet Governance Forum) is a United Nations activity initiated in 2006 as a global platform for multi-stakeholder policy dialogue on prevailing and emerging issues on Internet governance so as to foster the sustainability, robustness, security, stability and development of Internet.
The Internet has become an integral part of people's life. Despite the advantages, misuses and abuses lead to social problems, such as digital divide, Internet addiction, information safety, security, privacy and other evolving issues. These issues have no respect to national borders, and therefore require collaboration between countries and territories to address. The IGF approach is an open forum for knowledge sharing between stakeholders across borders, which in turn inform local policy development.
Committee assumed it's charge from 12th January 2022 for the term of 2 years.
Thank you for Serving on the Committee and for your contributions to the success of APSIG.
