Published On -

Dear Colleagues,


Warm greetings.Please find below the updates for the past month:


  1. Strategic Plan 2021-2023: We appreciate the feedback that you provided on the survey regarding the development of AFRINIC's next Strategic Plan. We have been intensively working on preparing the plan through different meetings, workshops, and interviews. We also had an online board retreat to reflect further on the key objectives and initiatives for our organisation. We will publish the final draft at the end of August and will discuss it during AIS20 before its adoption.
  2. AIS20: We are progressing well in our preparations for the first online AIS event in mid-September. The draft program is available at We hope and wish to "see" you all at the event. There have been some questions about elections in the online setup. Moving forward with online elections is a positive step at this challenging time. I would like to applaud everyone who has given their time and feedback to this process.
  3. WHOIS Accuracy: The team is still working on the resource audit, and the Interim injunction case is still pending before the Mauritian Supreme Court. We are aiming to complete the Audit exercise by the end of this calendar year.
  4. Partnerships: We have signed 2 MOUs in the past month. A collaboration framework with ISOC related to Internet measurement and resilience and one with the Nigerian Communication Commission, which will focus on IPv6 deployment in Nigeria. We are eager to see the benefits that will accrue from these new partnerships.


Kind regards and keep safe,


Take care,

Eddy Kayihura,
