The AfriNIC organizational structure is set to encourage a bottom-up self governance management model where policies and other organisational functions are determined by the community in general. AfriNIC policies are developed through an open Policy Development Process (PDP). There is no requirement to participate in the process and anybody can propose and discuss policy matters related to Internet resource management in the AfriNIC service region. Slide 6 About the AfriNIC PDP The AfriNIC PDP is moderated & coordinated by the PDP-MG. AfriNIC PDP-MG comprises of: Three members elected from the AfriNIC region & One AfriNIC staff who provides support to the MG AfriNIC PDP-MG members: Vincent Ngundi (Chair) Hytham El Nakhal Dr. Paulos Nyirenda Alain Aina (AfriNIC staff) Slide 7 About the AfriNIC PDP Slide 8 Why Participate in the PDP The development of Internet polices should be an all-inclusive process This is to ensure that the needs of all Internet users are addressed in the various policies Its therefore the onus of Internet users (members) to present their views/needs during the PDP Lack of member involvement in the PDP means that policies may not exhaustively address the concerns of those that it serves As a result, the community is highly encouraged to actively engage in the PDP Important to note is that sound Internet policies enhance the effective and efficient utilisation of Internet number resources! Slide 9 How to Participate in the PDP Propose policies By drafting policy proposals By assisting in drafting policy proposals Participate during mailing list discussions Participate during public policy discussions As a community, encourage each other to engage in the PDP Mentor others, for those who have experience Learn what is happening in other regions: As much as Internet resources are managed regionally, the Internet remains a global network!
