Africans seek collaboration between ISOC chapters - ITREALMS

Arising from the recently held African chapters session at the just concluded AFRINIC29 in Harmmamet, Tunisa, participants seek collaboration between Internet Society (ISOC) chapters across the continent, reports ITREALMS.

Chokri Ben Romdhane, a member of the local organizing committee, disclosed to 
ITREALMS that African Chapters members who participated in the AFRINIC29 public policy meeting in Hammamet, Tunisia, organized by the Tunisia ISOC Chapter, and discussed how to improve the collaboration between African chapters.

Part of the communique read:

“We consider that the collaboration between African Chapters is important for African chapters, and also for the achievement of the whole mission of Internet Society.

“We are aware of the difference in culture, policies, infrastructure between our countries and the difficulty to make in synergy all these factors.

“We believe that for the benefit of our region and community we should collaborate, and to do that we have established the following recommendations; Maintain an updated list of all the successful projects funded by Internet Society in the region; Define a list of topics based on the previous list of projects; and Create a group by topic and a call for memberships will be launched for all the chapters members.

Also, ITREALMS gathered that the groups should achieve feasible regional projects and facilitate funds seeking from ISOC and others foundations. Ideally, these projects should allow a replication of successful projects already implemented locally by another African chapter.
