The African regional Bureau (ARB) team held an “Internet Society Africa Team 2014 Update and 2015 Outlook” webinar for all Internet Society members and Chapter leaders from the region on Tuesday 16 December 2014. The two sessions, one in English and one in French, were attended by more than 50 and offered a significant opportunity to reflect on the ARB’s activities in 2014 and to get a sense of what 2015 will bring.

The webinar was also a unique occasion for the participants to ask questions and learn about the wide range of activities, which are implemented by the ARB across Africa in the field of technical capacity building, improvement of traffic exchange and interconnection as well as the Internet infrastructure, and provision of trusted resources throughout the region.

The ARB team presented the latest activities and achievements of the bureau in 2014 on:

  • Policy
  • Africa Interconnection and traffic exchange (ITE) Program
  • ccTLDs, DNSSEC, Capacity building, IPv6, open standards
  • Internet Society Chapters in Africa
  • Africa Team 2015 Outlook

We believe that these kinds of opportunities will enhance the knowledge and increase the contributions of different communities in promoting the greater objectives of the Internet Society.
