AFRINIC policies are a set of guidelines and processes that determine the manner in which Internet Number Resources (IPv4 Addresses, IPv6 Addresses and Autonomous System Numbers) are distributed by AFRINIC to operators of IP networks in Africa. The method through which these policies are developed (commonly referred to as the Policy Development Process, or PDP) is open, transparent and bottom up. 

Policies are developed by the Policy Development Working Group - PDWG, which constitutes anyone, anywhere that is interested in participating to Policy Development in the region, irrespective of nationality, gender, age, race, wealth and health. The PDWG is administered by two co-chairs, also elected by the same community that constitutes it, at AFRINIC Public Policy Meetings.
