  1. I would have expected such collaboration to be done with Afrinic which is a step closer to us than ICANN, but regardless, its a better start.

  2. @Macd Chip Afrinic mainly deals with the numbers function, so it mainly holds workshops on things like IPV6 trainings, it does not deal with the Names function that is why ICANN holds such workshops. Also ICANN is a multistakeholder global entity so it’s also relevant to any country.

    1. Ok thanks, maybe one needs really to attend to see value in this and gain a better understanding.
