Our mission - IP Address Lease

AFRINIC cites its mission as providing efficient and professional distribution of these resources to the internet community in Africa, as well as to support usage and development of internet technology all over the continent. It also seeks to bolster self-governance in the region through a multistakeholder PDP. AFRINIC was the last of the five RIR to be formed.

Registration and maintenance

AFRINIC, being an RIR, operates as a non-profit, and is a member-based association managing internet resources in the African region. Distribution is done the same way as by other RIRs: the regional community develops polices using a Policy Development Processes (PDP), and AFRINIC upholds and enforces this. It is also governed by a board elected by members, which gives PDP verification, strategic guidance, ad fiduciary oversight. Like the other RIRs, AFRINIC has set up measures which allow it to prevent capture through bylaws, election process, membership provisions, articles of incorporation, etc. There is also a joint stability fund which AFRINIC and the other RIRs use to make sure the global RIR scene remains functional and efficient over future decades.
