Greg and colleagues

Good afternoon.  Indeed this is an interesting Report and one we discussed
at the recent CSTD Inter-Sessional here in Geneva at the end of November
(ICANN ware an Observer).   There were indeed members of the CCWG present.

We are being asked (by UNTAD), see below, to comment on the entries to the
Mapping Report which touch on DNS / ICANN issues.   Will be submitting
comments and of course happy to make any observations members may have.

Dear Sir,

This is to inform you on the mapping and gap analysis of international
public policy issues pertaining to the Internet carried out by the CSTD
secretariat in August-mid-November, 2014. By doing this, the secretariat
responded to ECOSOC's recommendation to continue the work that was initiated
at the CSTD Working Group on Enhanced Cooperation (see ECOSOC resolution
E/RES/2014/27 of 16 July 2014).

The secretariat presented the findings of the work to the CSTD at its
intersessional panel which convened in Geneva on 26-28 November 2014. In
that meeting, the Commission recommended the outcome of the work to be sent
to the relevant organisations mentioned in the report for their possible
comments in view of adding accuracy and information to the document.

I am writing to you, as your organisation is mentioned on:

o        Paragraph "Status of governance mechanisms for IP numbers". Page

o        Paragraph "Possible gaps in dealing with the DNS". Page 12.

o        Paragraph "2.6 Root Zone". Page 12.

o        Paragraph "Status of governance mechanisms for arbitration". Page

o        Paragraph "5.4 Trademark". Page 31.

o        Paragraph "Status of governance mechanisms for consumer
protection". Page 36.

o        Paragraph "Possible gaps in dealing with consumer protection" Page

o        Paragraph "Status of governance mechanisms for capacity
development". Page 41.

o        Paragraph "Status of governance mechanisms for multilingualism".
Page 43.

o        Paragraph "8.5 Global public good". Page 45.

of the report document. I would appreciate if you could send your comments
to the document, and in particular, to the page where your organisation is
referenced by 31 December 2014.

The updated version of the document and the database that is also attached
to this email will be submitted to the CSTD as secretariat's informal
documents for the 18th annual session of the Commission  which takes place
on 4-8 May, 2015.

Best regards,

Anne Miroux

developed.  (See below.) Cmments on the draft report, and any submissions or
amendments to the database below referenced will be taken by the CSTD for

Dear all, 

I know we all get overloaded with reports to read, but I thought I¹d
highlight one that is really worth the time.

The CSTD WGEC started the effort to map the many institutions, organisations
and processes were policy with an Internet dimension is being addressed; the
CSTD Secretariat has taken that effort and built upon it, releasing a report
that will get discussed at the CSTD this Thursday.

The report - "The mapping of international Internet public policy issues
[Advanced Version]² is here:

The database is here:

This makes clear that there really are no Œorphan issues¹ but there is
clearly a coordination problem; I know there are quite a few on this list
who have seen this for a long time and as a Geneva-based policy person I¹ve
been a victim of it myself for the last 8 years ;)

Regards, Nick
