The International Telecommunication Union Annual Regional Human Capacity Building Workshop took place in Abuja Nigeria. The event themed, “Strengthening Capacities in Internet Governance in Africa”, addressed pressing issues regarding Internet governance at a regional level. The workshop also addressed the challenges associated with the growth of the internet, and capacity development issues in the African region.

In the 2017-2018 period, we were able to train over 700 engineers and managers in workshops held in 21 countries in Africa. This was with the support of various stakeholders in the AFRINIC Community. These trainings covered the knowledge and skills of Internet Number Resources Management (INRM) and IPv6 Planning and Deployment.
