***IGF Academy releases “IGF Academy Transfer Guide: Sharing Learning  
and Experience” to help create national Internet governance  

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.

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 infrastructures.
“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, explains.

“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 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.
