> A New Approach to Africa****
> 10 August 2012****
> With the support of AFRINIC, Africa's Regional Registry for Internet
> Number Resources, ICANN and leading members of its community are today
> announcing an initiative aimed at increasing African participation and
> influence within ICANN.****
> This initiative is the result of a June meeting involving Steve Crocker,
> Chairman of ICANN's Board of Directors, ICANN's CEO-Designate Fadi Chehadé
> and its Interim CEO Akram Atallah with African community members at ICANN's
> 44th Public Meeting, in Prague, Czech Republic.****
> The goal is to develop a framework for ICANN's Africa strategy and to
> announce an initial plan at the October 2012 Public Meeting in Toronto,
> Canada. The strategy will aim both to support a stronger presence for ICANN
> in Africa and to increase African participation in ICANN. It will also
> foster the promotion of the multi-stakeholder model in Africa at the
> government, civil society and private sector levels.****
> This effort is a step toward stronger global engagement for ICANN, with a
> special focus on developing countries.****
> To contribute to the development of the new strategy, a working group was
> created and endorsed by the African community members meeting in Prague,
> including key players in Internet governance from different regions in
> Africa. The working group has selected Nii Quaynor of Ghana, a
> well-respected Internet leader in Africa, to lead its efforts.****
> ICANN has appointed Tarek Kamel of Egypt to serve as a Senior Advisor to
> its President and CEO on global issues, and to work with the group to
> develop the initial strategic plan that will be announced in Toronto. The
> working group unanimously endorsed this choice. Tarek is well known for his
> long record of achievements in promoting the Internet and its
> multi-stakeholder model in developing countries.****
> For further information or to submit ideas, please contact
