The program provides funding as well as capacity building and networking opportunities to civil society organizations, enterprises, governments, and universities seeking to unlock the potential of information and communications technology for the region’s development.
Ayitic Ayitic Goes Global
AYITIC Goes Global is an initiative of LACNIC and IDRC that seeks to increase women's access to employment in Haiti by building digital capacities in the field of Information Technology. The project is being implemented with the support of local partners: ESIH -- Ecole Supérieure d'Infotronique d'Haïti -- and Transversal, together with leading experts in digital learning from the Caribbean Open Institute
The main goal of the +Raices project is the installation of anycast root server copies in various countries of the LACNIC region. By installing these servers at strategic locations throughout the region such as IXPs (Internet Exchange Points) and NAPs (Network Access Points), the project seeks to achieve greater resiliency for one of the Internet's most critical resources, the DNS. It provides redundancy and reduces criticality, allowing a better response in case of potential DDoS attacks or eventual infrastructure failures that could render certain root servers inoperative.
Lifetime Achievement Award
The Board of Directors believes that, as part of LACNIC's mission to promote and articulate collaborative efforts within the region, and in support of LACNIC's commitment to the constant development of the Internet and the Information Society in Latin America and the Caribbean, it is important to honor those individuals who have long devoted their efforts to the consecution of these objectives for their concrete achievements and for the example they set for the rest of the community.
FORT is a joint initiative by LACNIC, the Regional Internet Registry for Latin America and the Caribbean, and NIC.MX.
The goal of the project is to contribute to RPKI deployment as a means to render routing systems –a basic building block of Internet infrastructure– more secure and resilient. In turn, the project will contribute to preventing route hijacks and the exposing how vulnerabilities of the routing system impact on end-users’ ability to navigate the Internet freely and access information.
