CIPACO sponsors Nweke to IG conference

Centre for International ICT Policies, Central and West Africa (CIPACO) has announced the sponsorship of a senior reporter with Daily Champion, Mr. Remmy Nweke, to an international seminar on Information and Communication Technology, Diplomacy and Internet Governance (IG).

The seminar holding in Malta is organized by Diplo Foundation with offices in Malta and Switzerland, comes in a 10-day workshop on 'ICT and Contemporary Diplomacy' as well as a three-day conference on ‘Internet Governance: The Way Forward’.

The workshop organized in collaboration with the University of Malta is to prepare selected diplomats and stakeholders on the use of ICT tools at this era, lasting between January 31 and February 9.

While the international conference on IG; The Way Forward, is expected to proffer the next step for the Internet Governance, which takes place from February 10 through 12, this year.

The sponsorship would afford Mr. Nweke, who also edits ITREALMS Online, http://itrealms.blogspot.com; an insight into the use of ICT and contemporary diplomacy and report back to through his medium.

The Senegalese-based CIPACO is an initiative of Panos Institute West Africa (PIWA), headquartered in London and established to strengthen the capacity of African stakeholders for a more effective participation in international ICT decision-making processes.

Announcing this development, Project Coordinator at CIPACO, Mr. Ken Lohento, said he has the “pleasure to inform that we (CIPACO) have selected you to receive the grant to participate in international ICT policy events”.

The grant, worth $2500 is believed by CIPACO to facilitate his participation at the event, which is a following up to WSIS-05, hence the organization is interested for its benefit to the stakeholders.

The conference on Internet Governance is the first to be organised after the second phase of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) late last year.
