FCA: APAC Remote Hubs and APAC Fellowships from the Global South to attend IGF 2023

IGF Secretariat – UN DESA

The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is one of the most significant outcomes of the World Summit on Information Society (WSIS), which was held in two phases in Geneva, 2003, and in Tunis, 2005. The IGF mandate stems from a request in paragraph 67 of the Tunis Agenda for the Information Society, for the Secretary-General of the United Nations to convene a new forum for multistakeholder Internet policy dialogue. 

This funding is to support two activities related to the IGF 2023:

  • Travel support for stakeholders from developing countries to participate in person at the 18th IGF in Kyoto, Japan.
  • Support for communities to register remote hubs and receive training and support.
