As part of our Internet Governance programme, the Chapter organized this national event with the support of the National Working Group for Internet Governance. This one and a half day event brought together 110 participants, made up of players in the internet in Namibia, who discussed different policy issues related to internet development in Namibia. The event was held under the theme “Internet of Trust” as derived from the global Internet Governance Forum theme. Some key topics worth noting were Cybersecurity, ICT Policy Harmonization, Online safety for children and as well as indigenous identity on the internet.
ISOC Namibia served as a secretariat for this national event and sourcing funding and technical expertise and support for this event, on behalf of the national working group. The event took place at the UN House thanks to local partner UNESCO – who at global level also hosted the IGF in Paris.
