He was heavily involved in preparing and presenting ICANN 42 in Dakar. He spoke at the welcoming ceremony where he stressed the need for ICANN to improve its relation with the African continent. He called on them to create offices in the area to better allow African stakeholders to stay involved, and underlined the need for ICANN to help poorer African nations with developmental aid, especially with regards to the new gTLD program. He also wanted ICANN to lead the implementation of more root servers in the area, and translate all documents into French and the other official U.N. languages. He noted that these were not only important for Africans, but for ICANN to truly become an inclusive, international organization.
