With 8 speakers in 60 minutes, I somehow doubt there will be much time for
Q&A on this one. The Livestream might be a good option. If tweeting note
that #AfricaInternetResilience is the event series, and #StrongInternet the
campaign. Both should be used.

Avec 8 haut-parleurs en 60 minutes, je doute qu'il y ait beaucoup de temps
pour les questions et réponses sur celui-ci. Le Livestream pourrait être
une bonne option. Si vous tweetez, notez que #AfricaInternetResilience est
la série d'événements et #StrongInternet la campagne. Les deux doivent être
utilisés.

This webinar, '*Internet Resilience in Africa in the context of COVID-19*'
assesses the growing impact of COVID-19 on livelihoods and work in Africa
and examines the readiness of the continent’s Internet infrastructure to
help mitigate those challenges. The event will discuss the impact of the
quick and major changes in the use of the Internet that occurred in the
last few months due to COVID-19 on the operations of organizations such as
AFRINIC, Internet Service Providers and Cable Operators. It also discusses
how the Internet has allowed business continuity during lockdowns and how
governments, regulators, operators and the private sector have used the
Internet to ease the disruption of our social and economic life. Last but
not least, it will discuss how the Internet is being used in the fight
against COVID-19. Participation is *via Zoom <https://bit.ly/3gxrTMd>* in
