The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) at the United Nations is an open, global forum where different participants from various stakeholder groups – governments, the technical community, civil society, academia, and the private sector – discuss Internet Governance and policy issues, on equal footing. The Best Practice Forums (BPFs) at the IGF seek to collect, discuss, and share different “best practices” used around the world for Internet Governance and policy issues. The BPFs help us to learn from each other by sharing our experiences – our successes as well as not so successful efforts.

The 2015 BPFs focus on six different areas: 1) regulating spam; 2) establishing and supporting Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs); 3) establishing and supporting Internet Exchange Points (IXPs); 4) developing multistakeholder participation mechanisms; 5) Countering the abuse of women online; and 6) creating an environment that encourages the widespread adoption of Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) by those currently using Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4). These actors include, for example, wired and mobile access ISPs, content owners, CDN operators, web hosting providers, residential gateway makers, VPN service providers, and corporate IT networks.
