The Caribbean Internet Governance Forum (CIGF) is a regional, multi-stakeholder forum initiated by the CTU and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat in 2005 to coordinate a regional approach to Internet Governance. The forum has since met annually and the primary products of its work have been the formulation of a Caribbean Internet Governance Policy Framework (currently at v2), the proliferation of Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) and capacity building in Internet Governance Principles across the Caribbean.
The 13th CIGF will assess the status and effectiveness of the new thrust, being pursued since 2014, to enhance Internet governance expertise and capacity at the national level in the Caribbean. The new thrust will accelerate the development of national multi-stakeholder structures to facilitate in-country implementation of regionally derived/harmonised activities. The 13th CIGF will also provide a regional platform to highlight and address current IG issues of Caribbean and global prominence, towards building consensus on appropriate Caribbean methodologies and formulating action plans for advancing Caribbean interests.

The tenth edition of the Latin American & Caribbean Internet Governance Forum (LACIGF) meeting is taking place in Panama City, Panama, on 2-4 August 2017.
What is LACIGF? LACIGF is the Regional Latin American and Caribbean Preparatory Meeting for the Internet Governance Forum. The event has been held annually since 2008 and provides a space for multisectoral dialogue where government, private sector, technical community, academia and civil society organization representatives present and discuss their points of view on the Internet Governance agenda for the region.
The LACIGF agenda shows the times of the various Internet Governance sessions over the 3 days. Note that the times are local to Panama which is 1 hour earlier than the time in Trinidad and Tobago. Therefore, one must add one hour to the times listed in the LACIGF agenda.
