The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in cooperation with Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC) Underserved Regions Working Group has announced to conduct capacity development workshop for Asia from 24–25 February 2018 in Kathmandu, Nepal, with the support of Nepal’s Department of Information Technology.

Sanjay Sharma, Secretary, Ministry of Science and Technology, Nepal, will give the opening remarks. Almost 20 government representatives from 11 economies in Asia will attend the workshop

In rapidly developing Asia, expected home to the next billion Internet users, challenges remain in ensuring adequate and secure Internet access. Barriers to participation in ICANN include a lack of human resources and knowledge about the Domain Name System (DNS).

The workshop aims at

  • Understanding the ICANN ecosystem
  • Understanding the Internet: names, numbers, protocol parameters
  • Security, stability, and resiliency (SSR) of unique Internet identifiers
  • ICANN policy development process

Speakers from regional Internet organizations will introduce their ongoing work in the Asia Pacific region as part of the Internet ecosystem. Workshop participants will discuss effective ways to participate and contribute to ICANN discussions. Additionally, the workshop will seek feedback from Asia GACrepresentatives on how best to support their work and increase their presence in the region and in ICANN.

The full workshop agenda can be found here

ICANN‘s mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
