The following is the result of the workshop evaluation and selection process conducted by the Africa IGF Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) for the 2022 Africa IGF annual meeting.

The selected 47 workshops of evaluated 93 are listed below. All proposers – those approved, approved conditionally, and not approved – will receive individual emails on their status, as well as further instructions if applicable.
