  2. 2. 2 | P a g e Report on Internet Governance Capacity Survey, Nepal, 2016: Shreedeep Rayamajhi Internet Governance Capacity Survey, Nepal, 2016 Adapting a more proactive form, internet today has changed its definition and core values exploring the needs and possibilities of growth and development. It has basically reached the level where people do everything in it, from expressing their feelings to their businesses, everything is possible within the click of a button. With this advantage of high tech and smart technology, internet on the other hand also has a more sensitive and threatening side. Internet Governance Awareness has become an immense need especially for the developing and the least developing countries where there are more issues related to development, growth and governance. The technical aspect of the internet operation was long managed by the technical community but conditioning its dynamics it has evolved with new concepts of Multistakeholderism and collaborative leadership. It is further expanding in a broader concept of creating a free platform of Open standards where Internet Governance Forum (IGF) serves as an effective medium of communication and collaboration. Similarly, Internet of thing (IoT) is yet another dynamic concept of interlinking information and data as per the need and cooperation with in the networks of network. The smart technology is driving the internet ecosystem smarter and faster where internet governance plays a crucial role in securing and safeguarding the digital rights of individual and various stakeholders. To be precise Internet Governance Process (IGP) is a more dynamic process of adapting the cooperation and collaboration of internet technology within the internet ecosystem facilitating and exploring the possibilities of growth and development. Another important aspect of IGP is its role in securing the rights and responsibilities of various stakeholders where it lobbies various issues though its open platform of IGF. Whether it’s about hacking or child exploitation or pornography, internet security today is one of the most vulnerable issues whish demand a proper mechanism and regulation. Due to absence of standardization in policies and mechanism, the externalities are materializing to a new level where it’s establishing itself as threat to everyone in one or the other form. However, due lack of proper IG knowledge, the issue of security is high on alert especially in developing and underdeveloped countries. More or less, policies and mechanism have been developed but are very limited and prepared according to the feasibility of developed nation where the developing and underdeveloped countries lie at the stake of uncertainty. This gap between the developed counties and remaining has resulted in a conflict where rules and regulation remains stagnant to each other giving space for externalities and irregularities. This situation has led into manipulation and exploitation where child abuse, cybercrimes, identity theft, copyrights issue, hacking etc are in the trend of rise.
  3. 3. 3 | P a g e Report on Internet Governance Capacity Survey, Nepal, 2016: Shreedeep Rayamajhi Research Objectives: The basic objective of this research is to segregate the common knowledge and understanding of Internet Governance (IG) Process among the normal public of Nepal. Though there are various capacity building campaigns running but there has been very less work done in terms of understanding the knowledge and acceptability of the internet governance process at grassroots level. Even at national or regional level the IG process is still not accepted as part of the internet development process. This research deals with the basic objective of understanding the capacity of normal public in terms of their knowledge of Internet Governance and multistakeholder concept. The objective can be listed in following given points:  Finding the basic knowledge about Internet Governance concept  Effectiveness of awareness and capacity building program  Local policy and action mechanism  Assumption and practices of internet core values  Problems and issues related to cyber security  User behavior towards government policies  Social indicators for Internet development process  New perspective and ideologies  Social media trend  Youth concepts and practices Basic Information of Nepal: Total Population of Nepal 30,986,975 (July 2014 est.)

  13. 13. 13 | P a g e Report on Internet Governance Capacity Survey, Nepal, 2016: Shreedeep Rayamajhi Survey Conclusions: Internet Governance and its standardization has always been a major issue for developing and least developing countries of Asia Pacific. Especially in Nepal with limited resources and no strong voices lobbying proper rules and regulation, the literacy and awareness about internet governance at policy level and leadership is very less. Even at policy and leadership level the awareness level is literally nil. There has been no efforts done in terms of creating awareness at policy level which is further blocking the prospect of development and growth of internet. Though there are various informational societies and associations running but their work and objectives are limited to policy definition and other work modalities. During the survey many of the participants have focused and highlighted the prospect of use of technology in terms of their daily lives. Most of them voted for using internet at major of the public places where the second choice was home. In context of the rights of internet users all the participated voted for the rights and privileges of internet users. In context of government control or internet to be managed by the government seemed very confused, though the majority of people voted against but the people also showed their trust in government censorship and surveillance. Regarding the Internet Governance awareness there was a very weak capacity seen among the participants. Though they realize the importance of internet ecosystem and the role of various stakeholders but the concept of multistakeholderism was found at beginner stage among the participants. The awareness of cyber security and online protection were seen as important topic which needs to be cater with effective programs and within better communication network. Likewise, the results also highlights the contemporary practice of use of social media and technology without having proper knowledge of knowing their privacy rights. Similarly, the prime cause of online cybercrime was reason to be limited ideologies of people seeing internet as a tool of communication by ignoring their person information online. There were other voices of right access, Quality of Standard and low cost solution as well. Currently, it is estimated that from Nepal there are more than 4.9 million internet users who are online every day in search of information or data. With the numbers increasing every year people who are online with limited knowledge about internet rights and principle itself is a threat. A wide range of participation was seen from various Sectors from technical field to leaders to lawyers to IT professional to doctors to students to homemakers with varying a wide sense of prospect and issues of action.
