Hi Bob,

Thanks for sharing, brother!

> The Africa Engagement Forum will be dedicated to bringing the African

> community together and supporting their work within ICANN.


...if i get it well, this is the goal of that forum.

The forum will include active working groups and policy development

> processes for the Domain Name System (DNS), related to ICANN and its

> constituencies. It will also provide ICANN org with the opportunity to have

> a dedicated platform to gather, follow-up, and coordinate the work being

> done with the regional community


i hope this will also include building local
infrastructures :-/

...btw, what are the problems this regional
forum wants to solve? are their roots identified?

As i remember, UN SDG#9 [1] is about infrastructures;
...maybe ICANN should start by financially
supporting a regional initiative such as this [2]
one :-/

It looks like a regular forum...isn't it?

...my hope is that it helps to cover real African's

Could someone, please, help me to better
understand the strategy behind?


Have a blessed monday!
