many thanks! Indeed the IGF Academy fellows are doing great and working
very hard strategically to set sustainable IG initiatives in their
countries. And some of them will organize this year a national IGF for the
first time - while others are focusing on accountability and are drawing
great knowledge from the experiences as new ICANN fellows (or attending
I think it would be great to gather all initiatives world wide providing
support (both knowledge and/or financial support to local IG structures).

>> ***IGF Academy releases “IGF Academy Transfer Guide: Sharing Learning and
>> Experience” to help create national Internet governance structures***
>> Berlin, Colombo, Johannesburg, June 12th, 2017
>> Do you plan to establish Internet governance processes in your country,
>> or do you want to enhance existing ones? They can be extremely helpful for
>> strengthening multi-stakeholder cooperation and developing joint positions
>> between government, businesses, civil society and others on how to manage
>> Internet resources in your country. To give everyone involved a head start,
>> IGF Academy has released the Transfer Guide, a toolkit that can be used by
>> new IGF National and Regional Initiatives (NRIs).
>> The Transfer Guide shares insights into the work done by the IGF Academy
>> Fellows from Bangladesh, Bhutan, Congo (Brazzaville), Myanmar, Namibia,
>> South Africa, Sri Lanka and Togo, and makes the good practice experiences
>> available to a wider public.
>> Download the IGF Academy Transfer Guide (10 MB) here:
>> The Transfer Guide outlines first strategic steps to create new NRIs and
>> explains organisational tools such as stakeholder mapping, SWOT analysis,
>> communication and funding strategies, as well as roadmaps. It combines the
>> experiences and challenges of IGF Academy Fellows in creating Internet
>> governance structures in their countries with the strategies they have
>> developed to deal with these issues.
>> IGF Academy partners with APC and LIRNEasia in providing support to 16
>> fellows from Africa and Asia for building or enhancing their nation’s IG
>> “The first year of the IGF Academy has pushed forward political
>> engagement and Internet governance discussions in all our partner
>> countries. We are happy to share our insights and offer these experiences
>> to enhance new NRIs globally”, Matthias Spielkamp, IGF Academy founder,
>> “The Transfer Guide offers a range of strategy tools to start up Internet
>> governance dialogue and offers an honest perspective on the status quo for
>> the upcoming national IGFs engaged in the IGF Academy. 2016 has been a rich
>> experience in creating new IG initiatives and we are happy to continue our
>> cooperation in 2017”, adds Lorena Jaume-Palasí, IGF Academy founder.
>> The IGF Academy Toolkit is published under a Creative Commons license.
>> Please feel free to copy, use, distribute and build upon this material. IGF
>> Academy is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation
>> and Development, ICANN and CIMA.
>> The IGF Academy will hold online meetings with the fellows as well as
>> provide webinars to assist them with the development of their strategy
>> roadmaps until the upcoming global IGF. It will support all fellows to
>> attend the IGF, to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, and will organise a
>> meeting on-site prior to the global IGF to prepare the fellows to
>> participate in the forum.
