This is a no-sense.

The webinar is not a modification of the PDP, in fact is not related to the PDP.

Is just one more way for authors and community to get in touch and have more time for open discussions and clarifications. Some times emails is not sufficient, or people is afraid to use email or even ask questions at the meeting.

The webinar is not a way to determine consensus: that will require a modification of the PDP.

Whatever efforts can be done for community to get more and more involved in the Policy Development, need to be welcome in good faith by all community members, I’m really surprised anyone can be against that (I would consider that bad faith). It will be like “authors of proposals can ONLY discuss and present proposals in the mailing list and the meeting, otherwise they are doing a criminal action”.

+1 Caleb,

The introduction of a new mechanism in our policy development process, that is, the organization of Webinar to discuss policy could have been good to look at as a working group to see the merits and the demerits of its use and if adopted, we will all abide by it.

In all case we shall be careful to not temper unnecessarily with the process and introduce risks of contentions.

In the meantime, why not organize webinars on Afrinic mission and mandate, important corporate documents (RSA.... ), existing policies, the CPM, the PDP itself and how to participate...

People need the fundamentals to be able to understand and make their opinions on proposals. They would have had all the benchmarks to "decrypt" messages and participate more on the RPD list and during PPM.

Dear Abdulkarim,

Many thanks for the initiative on this webinar.

Despite that, I will like to mention that there was no wider consultation on the scheduling which is what I know as a bottom approach. (Maybe that was done and I did not get the mail, you may wish to point me or the community to that email)

Firstly, time and schedules are not imposed on a voluntary service-oriented community. There is an expectation that we respect people's time to get better participation.

Secondly, time zone differences of the community members were not put into consideration.

My general suggestion for improvement of the processes is that you set up a doodle poll with different time considerations for members to select based on their convenience/preference. Thereafter, you send a Google Calendar invite for members to note it in their personal calendar.

Warm regards.

Thank you for the great feedback. We hope to see lots of us joining the webinar.

Dear Co-chairs

Its really great to see that you are organizing such activity, I hope this webinars will contribute to have a better understanding of the proposed policies in our region. I will take this opportunity to encourage authors to arrange to have a slot in this session or in the forthcoming series.

I also recommend to not have more than TWO proposals per session and then utilize our rpd to follow-up and summaries the discussion.

Objet :[rpd] 1st PDWG Webinar

Dear PDWG,

Greetings to you all from the wonderful city of Ilorin.

As a way of improving the AFRINIC Policy Development Process, we the WG Co-chairs have decided to organise webinars where authors of proposed policies can come and talk about their proposal to the community especially to those present in the webinar. We shall not be seeking any form of consensus during these webinars but rather a better understanding of those proposals.

Webinars are open to any interested individual from any part of the world.

In view of the above, we have decided to hold the 1st of the webinar series on Tuesday 24th September at 17:00- 18:00 UTC.

Authors who intend to present during this webinar should please send an email to pdwg at to signify their interest on or before 12:00 UTC on 22nd Sept 2019

I hope we would take time out of our busy schedule to attend this webinar. Details on how to join the webinar shall be communicated as soon as possible.

Thank You
