Challenges for RALOs




Come to produce reasonable working
mechanism (it took years for DNSO to
become productive)
How individuals participate after RALO
established?
Funding: government/industry support?
Setup office? Secretariat?


Need coordinating body?
Lightweight organization
Issues



Regional diversity
User organization to act as local focal
point
How to go beyond the technical
community? – Consumer advocates,
general users, small enterprise, etc.
More challenges





Will Bottom-up happen without
top-down or other support?
Need some top-down?
Bottom-up per se is illusion?
Do we need an umbrella structure?
Still need coordination within
region, and beyond regions
Challenges for AP

Difficult to base on individuals in
Asia:


Should we accept industry and
government support/collaboration?
How much “restriction” should we
adopt with the criteria?
