Who are the NRIs?
National and Regional IGF initiatives (NRIs) are organic and independent formations that are discussing issues pertaining to Internet Governance from the perspective of their respective communities, while acting in accordance with the main principles of the global IGF.

Organizational principles
The IGF initiatives are expected to follow the principles and practices of being open and transparent, inclusive and non-commercial. They work in accordance with the bottom up consensus process of the IGF and need to have a multistakeholder participation (at least three stakeholder groups initially, and evolve toward inclusion of all stakeholder groups), in both formation of the Initiative and in any other Initiative related events.

How many NRIs are recognised by the UN Secretariat of the IGF?
Currently, there are 121 NRIs in total.
  • 87 national IGFs: https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/national-igf-initiatives
