> ***IGF Academy releases “IGF Academy Transfer Guide: Sharing Learning and
> Experience” to help create national Internet governance structures***
> Berlin, Colombo, Johannesburg, June 12th, 2017
> Do you plan to establish Internet governance processes in your country, or
> do you want to enhance existing ones? They can be extremely helpful for
> strengthening multi-stakeholder cooperation and developing joint positions
> between government, businesses, civil society and others on how to manage
> Internet resources in your country. To give everyone involved a head start,
> IGF Academy has released the Transfer Guide, a toolkit that can be used by
> new IGF National and Regional Initiatives (NRIs).
> The Transfer Guide shares insights into the work done by the IGF Academy
> Fellows from Bangladesh, Bhutan, Congo (Brazzaville), Myanmar, Namibia,
> South Africa, Sri Lanka and Togo, and makes the good practice experiences
> available to a wider public.
> Download the IGF Academy Transfer Guide (10 MB) here:
> http://igf.academy/wp-content/uploads/IGF_transfer_guide_final.pdf
> The Transfer Guide outlines first strategic steps to create new NRIs and
> explains organisational tools such as stakeholder mapping, SWOT analysis,
> communication and funding strategies, as well as roadmaps. It combines the
> experiences and challenges of IGF Academy Fellows in creating Internet
> governance structures in their countries with the strategies they have
> developed to deal with these issues.
> IGF Academy partners with APC and LIRNEasia in providing support to 16
> fellows from Africa and Asia for building or enhancing their nation’s IG
> infrastructures.
> “The first year of the IGF Academy has pushed forward political engagement
> and Internet governance discussions in all our partner countries. We are
> happy to share our insights and offer these experiences to enhance new NRIs
> globally”, Matthias Spielkamp, IGF Academy founder, explains.
> “The Transfer Guide offers a range of strategy tools to start up Internet
> governance dialogue and offers an honest perspective on the status quo for
> the upcoming national IGFs engaged in the IGF Academy. 2016 has been a rich
> experience in creating new IG initiatives and we are happy to continue our
> cooperation in 2017”, adds Lorena Jaume-Palasí, IGF Academy founder.
> The IGF Academy Toolkit is published under a Creative Commons license.
> Please feel free to copy, use, distribute and build upon this material. IGF
> Academy is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation
> and Development, ICANN and CIMA.
> The IGF Academy will hold online meetings with the fellows as well as
> provide webinars to assist them with the development of their strategy
> roadmaps until the upcoming global IGF. It will support all fellows to
> attend the IGF, to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, and will organise a
> meeting on-site prior to the global IGF to prepare the fellows to
> participate in the forum.
