About forum:

The Central Asian Internet Governance Forum (CA IGF) is a sub-regional initiative of the global Internet Governance Forum (IGF), convened by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, with the participation of various stakeholders for dialogue on issues related to digital development and access to technology, leveraging the benefits of the Internet. The forum annually brings together delegates from Central Asia representing diverse actors to discuss utilizing the opportunities of the Internet to mitigate emerging risks and challenges in the digital era.

CA IGF is a regional international platform for representatives of governments, businesses, international and non-governmental organizations, and experts from Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Tajikistan. The main goal of the Forum is to create a public platform for discussing Internet governance issues in the Central Asian region and developing recommendations to address the challenges of the new digital era. Since 2016, the forum has been held annually in Bishkek, Astana, Tashkent, and Dushanbe. In the current year 2024, the right to host the forum and set the agenda belongs to the Uzbekistan.

Experts from neighboring countries are traditionally invited to participate in the Forum, taking into account the commonality of problems in the digital space.
