Building and Sustaining Regional Communities

As Africa develops her regional infrastructure, it has becomes more important to be able to build and sustain regional communities in support of the same. While not intended as a replacement for existing mailing fora, SAFNOG hopes to be able to provide a discussion forum, and build a community for matters specific to the sub-region.



SAFNOG looks forward to bringing the community together again for its 7th annual conference, SAFNOG-7, on 30-31 August in Cape Town, South Africa. SAFNOG-7 will be the first in-person conference SAFNOG will host after two years of physical distancing due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
