Trip Assessment Form


1) Describe the Trip in sufficient detail
that an interested reader could understand Who,
What, When, Where, and Why concerning this
funded CROP activity (please be as expansive
as possible):  

Through the NCUC CROP Africa funding programme,  ICANN funded Liz Orembo to attend 3 days (6th May to 8th May) of the Africa Internet Summit (AIS). The AIS is an annual, regional, multi-stakeholder ICT conference, hosted by Africa's Regional Internet Registry (Afrinic) The event took place from 29th April to 13th May. With trainings, workshops, seminars and conferences. More details here:

Liz had prepared a proposal for a session with the members of the NCUC and submitted it in response to AIS call for proposals. However, ICANN usually has a full day workshop where participants are introduced to ICANN’s work and the various community groups and constituencies. The proposal was, therefore, included in the presentation done at the ICANN day.  

During the presentation of the different stakeholder groups at ICANN, Liz presented on the NCUC processes, highlighting how newcomers can join and start taking part in NCUC’s work.  In attendance, were ICANN community members, local civil society groups and students. Some of the questions that arose included the steps that NCUC took to build more capacity in Africa and concerns on the low participation of Africa civic organizations in the region. Liz explained issues on perception of the civil society on ICT and also specifically on the perception of issues on the Internet Architecture being too technical for non-techies.

Because of time, event participants took other opportunities to network also outside the panel engagement to ask about the NCUC, how to join and who to contact as their regional representatives.

2) Explain the extent to which the Proposed
Goals and Outcomes were accomplished
(see above LINK to review the original Proposal):  

Liz worked with the GSE and Edem Kobla at the ICANN booth. She talked to civic organizations and civil society groups about the works of NCUC and directed them to the NCUC’s page and recordings for the NCUC Policy Writing Course. NCUC participation in this year’s AIS was important, mostly because it managed to bring in African Francophone participants who are few, compared to the anglophone. This fulfilled the diverse membership recruitment objective. NCUC regularly addresses their francophone members database through tweets, translated materials and members calls. The proposal was approved by NCUC Executive Committee and received notes for improvement (original proposal:

3) Additional information pertaining
to this outreach Trip (optional):
The outreach was successful and we were able to get civil society groups, and mostly women who were attending Akira chix, capacity building workshop for women. I was also able to reach out to university students who wanted to learn more about ICANN and NCUC. The slide I had presented was also sharedto the participants with my contacts and those of the NCUC regional representatives.
