A few months ago, the Association Française pour 
le Nommage Internet en Coopération published a 
report about ICANN diversity.  According to the 
report, "Africa, Latin America and Asia are 
under-represented" as "ICANN community leaders".

I tried to find information about one of the 
region's internet institution.  Unfortunately, 
the Africa Top Level Domain does not make its 
constitution available on its website.  The ICANN 
bylaws has a "diversity calculation".  The ALAC 
Representative for the region is better qualified to explain how that works.
