3. Questions from the Community -15 mins

Members of the ALAC Subcommittee on Finance and Budget shall represent their regions and be given the right of first questions. Following their questions, the floor will be opened to the members of the At-Large community. The order will be alphabetical order by RALO: AFRALO, APRALO, EURALO, LACRALO, NARALO (at the discretion of the Chair).

I propose that it be provided a budget chapter for Als activities in their regions and / or their respective countries in connection with the mobilization of local actors about the many contributions required by the deadlines.

It is very important that from now on, as a budgetary provision be considered for not only well informed but also entrenching the culture of digital technology, particularly research

This implies that before every international meeting of ICANN, the Als have a packet of information gathered from various stakeholders such as registrars, registries, consumers, developers of web sites, policy makers ..

We still have this problem in most African countries, including a difficult relationship between the institutions, both national, international, regional and subregional. But even worse among national institutions and civil society if it is not an emanation of power in place.

These funds ICANN beside AFRINIC, AFTLD, ISOC etc. .. will further enable the ALs that can better target the information packets for the participation of local actors to training and the establishment of mechanisms and research strategies that meet local needs.
