Additional Comments
















Subject Matter Expert Support:

We would request the participation of

  1. At least two APRALO leaders and
  2. At least 2 experts from the local ICANN office to speak about ICANN activities in the region. We can provide our own experts to talk about local activities. The cost for these three participants could vary depending on their home base. Possibly USD3000 (airfares and accommodation for 3 days and 2 nights – 3 days for preparation, participation and evaluation )


Technology Support:(telephone, Adobe Connect, web streaming, etc.)

We would like to request support from the local ICANN office to provide some web streaming support to enable other areas of Bangladesh to be able to participate in the event as well, if this is possible.


This could be an additional cost if the office cannot supply it.

Language Services Support:

We would also like ICANN staff to provide the APRALO brochure and business cards in the official language of Bangladesh. (at least 100 of each)


I am unsure of what cost these would be, or whether they are from an internal budget.



Travel Support:

Travel support will be required for the

  1. APRALO Leaders
  2. Nearby ICANN office staff members to participate in the event. Possibly $3000-$4000.


Potential/planned Sponsorship Contribution:

  2. ICANN funding is requested to cover the cost of getting staff to the event and accommodating them.
  3. Other local sponsorship will make up any shortfall.
