One of IANA’s core functions is the allocation of Internet number resources (IPv4, IPv6 and ASNs) to AFRINIC and the other four Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). Globalisation of the IANA function is crucial to securing the continued stability and accessibility of the Internet. As one of IANA’s key stakeholders, it is imperative that the AFRINIC community contributes to all discussions on the future of the IANA function in order to provide input into the transition plan.

Here’s how you can provide input:
