The first character in the JID indicates the WOSM region. The regions are: 1 Africa, 2 Arab, 3 Asia-Pacific, 4 Euroasia, 5 Europe, 6 Interamerica. Further information on WOSM regions is on the WOSM website.
If you are part of a WAGGGS Member Organisation then you have been allocated a region code for the equivalent WOSM region.
Additionally, we are using ‘region 7’ for JOTA-JOTI projects, etc.
