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.
