The Internet raises significant challenges for public policy and sustainable human development, both internationally and for individual nations. Hence, the ongoing development of international policies and procedures to govern the use and operation of the Internet. However, although the Asia-Pacific region has the biggest share of global Internet users, it is under-represented in fora that develop Internet-related policies. There are a number of issues and specific challenges related to Internet Governance in the regional context. Governments of emerging economies need to understand these issues if they are to have a voice in the global information network.
