QUITO, Ecuador, 15 June 2011
As in previous editions, the purpose of the meeting is to provide a space for multistakeholder political dialogue between governments, the private sector, the technical community, academia, and civil society organizations. The region has made progress in understanding the challenges currently posed by Internet governance; further debate will contribute to identify regional priorities and broaden the region’s participation at the 2011 Internet Governance Forum (IGF), which will meet in Kenya in September.
Likewise, as in previous editions, one of the meeting’s goals is to inform the region’s stakeholders on the issues and trends observed in the debates and discussions of the global IGF. The process of regionalizing the discussion around the agenda established by the IGF has been taking shape since 2008, when LACNIC, APC and NUPEF summoned the first preparatory meeting for Latin America and the Caribbean in Montevideo, Uruguay. The second preparatory meeting was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the third in Quito, Ecuador.
Convention’s Open Agenda (New!). Survey to the community:
This year there is a new system to develop a open Agenda for the meeting, based on a public survey. This questionnaire poses diverse questions oriented to identify visions, approaches, subtopics and priorities from the LAC internet community in the perspective of defining and structuring the programme of the Latin American and Caribbean Convention on Internet Governance featuring the 7th Caribbean Internet Governance Forum (8th August, 2011) and the 4th Preparatory Meeting for the Global Internet Governance(9th-11th August). We invite to all the stakeholders interested in ICT4D, ICT policy and IG issues to contribute with your inputs to collectively build a regional agenda of multi-stakeholder policy dialogue.
CTU, LACNIC, NUPEF, ISOC and APC want to encourage the community to participate and hope to join the highest amount of regional actors as possible. We will be also sending information related to Scholarships Program for the meeting, conformed by contributions of the organizers and sponsors.
