Bangladesh Internet Governance Forum (BIGF) is the national internet governance forum for Bangladesh. Internet Governance Forums (IGFs) are an initiative led by the United Nations for the discussion of public policy issues relating to the internet.

A key distinguishing feature of IGFs is that they are based on the multi-stakeholder model – all sectors of society meet as equals to exchange ideas and discuss best practices. The purpose of IGFs is to facilitate a common understanding of how to maximize the opportunities of the internet whilst mitigating the risks and challenges that the internet presents.
