This session will give panellists from African countries an opportunity to present their
national assessment projects using Internet Universality Indicators (IUIs) during
a 10-minute remark and allow for further engagement with African IGF communities
and stakeholders. It will also allow UNESCO to show the impact of the IUIs
framework in fostering Internet reforms and improvements in Africa. UNESCO also
invites African stakeholders to join its newly launched Dynamic Coalition on Internet
Universality indicators.
