Afghanistan: Internet Governance Multi-Stakeholder Forum in Kabul

May 1, 2018 - May 3, 2018

From May 1-3, 2018, CLDP will support Afghanistan’s second national “Internet Governance Forum,” a multistakeholder event on a host of issues related to the Internet and broadband development.  With participation expected from non-government entities, Afghan government organizations, the private sector, and individuals, the event will be organized and conducted by a non-government working group of the Internet Society of Afghanistan.  Global Internet Governance Forums (IGFs) are held annually under the auspices of the United Nations, and the IGF’s multistakeholder governing bodies encourage national and regional IGFs such as this one.  CLDP has sponsored ICT professionals from both the government and non-profit sectors in Afghanistan to attend global UN IGFs, and this event represents a step forward by bringing an event to Afghanistan.  Organizers expect up to 200 Afghans participants to attend and to take part in both a “Day 0” educational day and two days of workshops led by Afghan and international speakers, appearing both in person and by web connection.  There will also be a “children’s academy."  The goal of the program is to strengthen the ICT environment and to increase transparency in how Afghan institutions develop and implement policy, as well as to promote U.S. ICT business opportunities in the country.
