This year, the CIGF evolves yet again, this time in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 16th
CIGF will be convened via online videoconferencing, under the theme: Accelerating Digital
Transformation – Internet Governance Matters! Countries, organizations and end-users have
all had to rely more heavily on digital services as COVID-19 related public health and social
distancing requirements catalysed adoption of remote working methods. No sector has
escaped impact. The role of ICTs has therefore never been more important, and the need for
effective, locally relevant Internet governance never more urgent.
