Hello there....
Another thought.....why don't Africans hold Sub-Region and then Regional brainstorming meetings on this before meeting during the ICANN meetings?

It seems to be a waste of resources by attending ICANN mtgs with no outcome. As it is, the ICANN mtgs are not there fir Africans to meet and deliberate in issues which should have been done as a homework. Otherwise nothing will be done effectively if this trend continued. 

Those who attend ICANN mtgs should be there to share ideas from Africa Region not to go there to meet amongst ourselves ...we should be mingling and exchanging ideas with others...

May I suggest that we make use of the resources provided in the African Strategy to do the homework?

Just a mere advice on this ...

Kind regards

Dear Barack and Mwendwa,

In the Los Angeles meeting, the joint meeting had as theme 'IANA transition and ICANN accountability seen by the African community''. I am not sure there was a report out of this joint meeting.

If i do remember, we didn't have enough time to discuss everyting. It was mainly about explaining what those functions are and what the transition means but we didn't go any further, maybe due to time constraints.

I would suggest we keep the same theme to allow those from the African community who were not present in LA and who will be in Singapore to contribute. But also, to further discussions on what is the role of Africa to help meet the NTIA's deadline as Mwendwa said earlier.

Best regards,

Arsene Tungali,
Rudi International
