The African Network Information Centre (AfriNIC) "is a non-government, not-for-profit, membership-based organization, based in Mauritius to serve African Internet Community. ... Its main role is to serve Africa region as Regional Internet Registry (RIR) ..." (as recognised by ICANN).


AfriNIC holds annual meetings in Africa, recently in conjunction with AfNOG.

AfriNIC is not directly concerned with localisation (though the 2008 neeting in Rabat, Morocco will be held in conjunction with an INET Africa? meeting in which localisation will be a main topic).
