AFRINIC participated in the World Telecommunication Development Conference (WTDC) 2022 that took place in Kigali, Rwanda from 6th -16th June 2022. Under the banner of “Connecting the unconnected to achieve sustainable development,” the conference presented a unique opportunity to develop innovative approaches and new models of collaboration for connectivity and digital solutions in this final Decade of Action to achieve the SDGs. The WTDC is organized by The International Telecommunication Union, through its Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT), every four years in the period between two Plenipotentiary Conferences to consider topics, projects and programmes relevant to telecommunication development.

 

Proposals submitted by AFRINIC and endorsed by African countries were taken into consideration in the final draft of the new Resolution 63 (Rev Kigali 2022), which was adopted by the ITU delegates during the plenary session. This is certainly a remarkable achievement for our continent that will be focusing on the effective deployment of IPv6 to accelerate the digital transformation. We expect this new resolution to be ratified during the ITU Plenipotentiary meeting in September 2022.

 

On the sidelines of the WTDC 2022 in Kigali, Rwanda, the AFRINIC delegation had fruitful meetings with partners and stakeholders which fostered ways for more cooperation and reinforcement of our complementary roles in the acceleration of Internet and digital service usage in Africa. AFRINIC has been cooperating with several African countries and the African Telecommunications Union on the effective deployment of IPv6 by 2026, to fulfil the growing demands for connectivity while ensuring a more robust network infrastructure.

The delegation left Kigali with the full satisfaction of getting the warming support of our stakeholders, who are ready to contribute toward the sustainable development of AFRINIC and the Internet in Africa.

 

AFRINIC en Avant.
