AFRALO & ICANN 42

In 2009, an AFRALO Working Group created a document that outlined the capacity building needs of AFRALO to inform and educate its representatives on ICANN activities and to establish a communication policy well-suited for the African region.[3]

AFRALO held a series of capacity building sessions at ICANN 42 in Dakar, Senegal in October 2011. More than 20 representatives from each of the African At-Large Structure joined the meetings, which had about 300 people in attendance. The five-day program, conducted by ICANN officers and staff, aimed to provide ALS representatives with briefs on key policies, issues, and facets of ICANN.

According to AFRALO's own metrics, the participation of ALS representatives increased by 30 percent in the two months following the conference. The organization also expects this participation level to extend to the At-Large policy development process and in At-Large Working Groups.[3]
