On the ICANN Website, a page on what it does reads as follows:
“To reach another person on the Internet you have to type an address into your computer – a name or a number. That address has to be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN coordinates these unique identifiers across the world. Without that coordination we wouldn’t have one global Internet.”ICANN Official Website
To the average novice, the name ICANN packs very little effect. While so many countries in Africa are getting involved on the internet, more attention needs to be focused on Capacity Building. Thus, the need to understand what ICANN can do in Africa.
