Your Guide to IANA Stewardship/Accountability at ICANN 53
Greetings from ICANN 53! If you're focused on following the IANA Stewardship
Transition and Enhancing ICANN Accountability processes here in Buenos Aires
or from your computer at home, I've compiled a quick reference guide of the
meetings that may be of interest to you. Please don't hesitate to join in
the discussions no matter where you are in the world. It's been a gratifying
experience over the past year to see the incredible amount of effort,
thought and work the ICANN community and staff have put into this process
­truly a testament to the strength of the multistakeholder model.
NTIA Administrator, Larry Strickling, will speak at Sunday evening's IANA
Stewardship Transition & History of ICANN Accountability session, providing
his views on both the IANA Stewardship Transition and Enhancing ICANN
Accountability proposals to date. The session will then focus on the
evolution ofICANN's accountability through the organizational maturation and
expansion over the past 17 years, and include panelists from the current
Enhancing ICANN Accountability process and from the 2002 Evolution and
Reform Committee.
Following the Opening Ceremony on Monday, the CCWG-Accountability and
CWG-Stewardship will come together for a Joint Town Hall Meeting to discuss
outcomes from the Enhancing ICANNAccountability Work Stream 1 Draft
Recommendations public comment period, and to reinforce the conditionality
between the two groups' proposals. For more information, you can read a
statement by the co-Chairs of the two groups here: Continuing Alignment:
Working Together Towards a New Stewardship and Enhanced Accountability
ds-a-new-stewardship-and-enhanced-accountability> . The CWG-Stewardship will
also hold a solo engagement session on Monday to discuss the Domain Names
community proposal and gather important community feedback as they inch
closer to submission to the ICG.
Additionally, there will be seven working sessions taking place in Buenos
Aires. These sessions are where the working groups discuss elements of their
proposals, develop language and move towards consensus. Like all sessions,
these working sessions can be followed remotely via Adobe Connect rooms. ICG
sessions will be live interpreted into five UN languages plus Portuguese.
