> Listers,
> On 3-5 July, the sixth Africa DNS Forum <https://dnsforum.africa/> will
> take place under the theme “Building a Sustainable Domain Name Industry
> in Africa” in Cotonou, Benin. The Forum is co-organized by the Internet
> Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the Africa Top Level
> Domains Organization (AfTLD <http://aftld.org/#&panel1-1>), and
> AfRegistrar <http://afregistrar.org/>. It will be hosted by the
> Regulatory Authority of Communications Electronics in Benin (ARCEP
> <https://www.arcep.fr/>). This year's forum follows on the success of the
> preceding forums, held in Durban, South Africa (2013), Abuja, Nigeria
> (2014), Nairobi, Kenya (2015), Marrakech, Morocco (2016), and Dar es
> Salaam, Tanzania (2017).
> Over the past six years, the Africa DNS Forum has become an important
> annual event, bringing together regional players and world experts in the
> DNS field to share experiences, best practices, and provide updates on
> developments in the domain industry. This year's three-day event builds on
> the takeaways from the previous one, and addresses key issues that directly
> concern the regional industry. Among this year's topics are data protection
> and privacy, registry and registrar platform development, Internationalized
> Domain Names and Universal Acceptance initiatives in Africa, and investment
> opportunities in the Africa DNS industry.
> Moreover, on 6 July, the African Internet community will celebrate 20
> years of Internet Governance in Africa <http://internethistory.africa/>.
> Representatives of ICANN leadership as well as the Internet pioneers of
> Africa will come together for the celebrations in Benin, twenty years after
> the first African Internet Governance Forum was held in Benin in 1998. The
> anniversary will be marked by a day-long event themed “An Efficient
> Governance of Internet in the Service of Africa Development.”
> Representatives of ICANN, Internet Society (ISOC), local governmental
> authorities, United Nations Development Programme, Internet pioneers of
> Africa, and more will be partaking in the event. For more information on
> the event, visit www.internethistory.africa.
> The first week of July will allow the regional Internet stakeholders to
> celebrate and reflect back upon the journey of the Internet in Africa, and
> discuss ways to improve the Internet penetration rates, online business
> opportunities, and participation in the global Internet Governance across
> the continent.
> We look forward to both events that will give us the opportunity to once
> again convene with our African stakeholders.
> For registration and more information on the Africa DNS Forum, visit
