The Internet Society Chapter Uganda in partnership with the Collaboration on International ICT Policy in East and Southern Africa (CIPESA) and the ICT Association of Uganda (ICTAU) are organising the Uganda Internet Governance Forum (UIGF) scheduled to take place at the Hive Colab, Kamyokya on September 18, 2013.
The one-day Forum, whose theme is “Harnessing Internet Development in Uganda: Connecting the last mile”, is a multi-stakeholder event that involves representatives from government, civil society, academia, private sector, entities and individuals interested in Internet Governance (IG) issues. The objectives of this Forum are: to discuss obstacles to Internet access in Uganda; establish IG issues relevant to the country; build consensus on national and regional positions around relevant IG issues and share the outcomes of the regional fora in East Africa.
Since its inauguration in 2006, the UIGF has continued to discuss and address Internet Policy issues in Uganda and East Africa. The proceedings of this year’s Forum will also be presented at the Second African Internet Governance Forum to be held in Nairobi September 24-26, 2013 and the global Internet Governance Forum in Bali, Indonesia October 22-25, 2013.
