Internet Governance developments in AfriNIC region

Hisham A. Ibrahim

IPv6 Program Manager

APNIC 32, South Korea

August 2011

Country Code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs)

More specifically AFTLDs

African Top Level Domains Organization (AFTLD) acts as a focal point for all the African TLDs Managers, to discuss matters of policy that affect ccTLDs globally and then, where possible, to present the group's position as one voice. One coherent voice from a large group of African ccTLDs will have more influence and will make it easier for external parties to gauge the opinion of the AFTLD registries.

AfriNIC Government Working Group

The African Government Working Group (AfGWG) was set up at the initiative of AfriNIC “with the aim of strengthening the collaboration between AfriNIC and African Governments and Regulators in order to create a dynamic framework to address general Internet Governance challenges faced within the region and specifically those related to Internet Number Resources.”
