Outreach Strategy

Outreach Plan
Description and


AFRALO has achieved tremendous success in outreach and engagement within the region especially with its participation in Africa Internet Summit and AFRINIC Meetings. We have achieved a high rise in the number of ALSes to current 53 African ALSes. This AFRALO engagement strategy will be aligned with ICANN Africa strategy and on going outreach and engagement activities of the ICANN Africa staff!

Aim of the Strategy

With the important increase in the number of ALSes, the strategy of FY18 will focus on  Engagement of the end users and will aim at:

  • Reaching out to African end users all over Africa to enhance engagement in the policy development processes and all other ICANN activities

  • Promoting the ICANN multi-stakeholder model and its bottom-up decision making process

  • Continue the effort of recruitment of new members (At-Large Structures and/or individual members)

Strategy plan

To reach the aims of the strategy, AFRALO shall:

  • Participate in events across Africa to:
    • Organize engagement sessions to present AFRALO, At-Large and ICANN to the event participants, explaining mission, constituencies and activities.
    • Make use of all breaks and social events to do the adequate outreach to bring African Internet organizations and individuals into ICANN Arena and make them interested to be involved in the processes
    • Make presentations about topics under discussion in ICANN to show how the African ICANN community participate effectively in the ICANN policy development
  • Organize local events, in partnership with the local ALSes to enhance their engagement and broaden their radiance in their respective countries
  • Continue to identify universities and academic institutions to organize fruitful discussions with students and teachers about Internet and ICANN to bring young people into ICANN through these Open Sessions
