This Workspace has been created to assist the ALAC/At-Large community in developing FY21 Additional Budget Request (ABR) proposals. The ALAC Finance and Budget Sub-committee (FBSC) will review all proposals submitted and will agree on which to submit to ICANN on behalf of the ALAC.

FY22 ALAC/ALT Plus Criteria for Additional Budget Requests: 

  • In the post-ATLAS III environment, proposals should include activities that will make the entire At-Large community more effective in policy advice development. 
  • Outreach should not be a major focus. Activities to improve engagement with existing members is encouraged.
  • If any request is made on outreach, it should go through the CROP program or as a part of a larger ALAC request for RALO Discretionary Funding. 
  • RALO requests should be strategic and in line with their RALO's strategic outreach plans and the At-Large 2021 Workplan and must be endorsed by their RALO prior to being submitted for consideration by the FBSC.
  • Priority will also only be given to those who have provided draft reports as requested as part of the FY21 ABR approval language. Final reports must be submitted by the end of FY21. 
  • Staff is currently expecting that basic resources for community communications/printing will be supported through the core ICANN budget, but that community proposals for printing , etc. will be accepted as a back-up in case expectations change.  Specific proposals for communications resources beyond simple printing and editing functions should be prepared and submitted.

ISOC MALINational Forum on the use of Social Networks

National Forum on the Use of Social Networks. The National Forum on the Use of Social Networks is an initiative of the Malian Chapter of the Internet Society (ALS AFRALO) undertaken following the various problems it has observed in the use of social networks in Mali. 

The ICT and Internet revolution has contributed to a new civic life. Exchanges between individuals on social networks have reached a level that deserves special attention and a new policy of use in our country. Today in Mali, everything is put on social networks: civil status facts; administrative documents, some even confidential, etc.

Worse still, every day we witness the publication on these networks of images, audio or videos of personalities and ordinary citizens with the sole aim of harming them.

In view of this situation, ISOC MALI has initiated a first project "called Debaters" which is in its second edition and which aims at putting the university and secondary schools in a contradictory debate on topics related to the protection of privacy on social networks. This forum is the logical continuation of this project.

If the debaters project targeted the majority of young users of social networks, the forum includes both users and decision-makers.

Awareness session followed by debate in the working-class neighborhoods of Bamako on the advantages and dangers of using the Internet

(F2F awareness raising on dangers of the Internet)


Association pour la promotion des femmes par les TIC MUSODEVAwareness session followed by debate in the working-class neighborhoods of Bamako on the advantages and dangers of using the Internet

Nowadays, the internet is widespread everywhere in Mali, although the cost of use is still high for the middle class.

This is a good thing, because no one can question the immense mine of opportunities behind it, but it has to be said that children, young people and parents are constantly exposed to cybercrime and harassment on the internet.

It is in this context that the association for the promotion of women through ICT for Musodev, wishes to organize awareness-raising sessions in two working-class districts and three peripheral districts of Bamako.

The objective of these sessions is on the one hand to draw the attention of these young people through debates on the advantages as well as the dangers linked to the internet and on the other hand to help parents to put in place measures to protect young people. Students will be also equipped on the ICANN ecosystem and how to get involved.

For a pilot phase, this project will concern two working-class districts and three peripheral districts of Bamako. It may well be spread over the entire territory.

This project will be a first in Togo in terms of promoting ICANN. It consists of capacity building and awareness of journalists and communicators in Togo on the topic of DNS (Domain Name System) abuse and the protection of personal data, in particular in this period of the Covid-19 pandemic. The activity will contribute to the promotion of the law on the protection of personal data adopted by the Togolese National Assembly on October 29, 2019, therefore recently and the promotion of ICANN works too. We named our activity MembersForce1.

MembersForce1 will allow in a short term:

-  to make ICANN and its role in the Internet governance ecosystem well known to a target audience of local communicators and journalists;

-  it will make it possible to train this target audience on abuses linked to the DNS, in particular those linked to personal data and their protection

- finally, carry out one of the recommendations of the 7th edition of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in Togo, held on December 14, 2019 in Lomé, the theme of which was: "Internet governance and data protection in Togo"

APRALO

Fellowship funding to assist active members of PICISOC and other Pacific ALS members to attend and participate in the Pacific IGF in Fiji.

(F2F IGF and education,  training and mentorship)

Maureen Hilyard, ALAC Chair and APRALO ALAC MemberFellowship funding to assist active members of PICISOC and other Pacific ALS members to attend and participate in the Pacific IGF in Fiji.

PICISOC (an At-Large ALS) proposes to hold a 2 day IGF alongside an APTLD Annual meeting and training week. The Pacific participants will be invited to attend a half-day session of the APTLD meeting. The other scheduled times will consist of sessions provided by At-Large, PICISOC, Internet NZ, APNIC,  While funding to host the event and to provide some funding towards Fellowship funding  is already being provided by APTLD, InternetNZ, APNIC, ISOC, DotAsia, the cost of travel and accommodation in the Pacific is expensive and further support would be required to even get  small cohort of about 20 participants from around the Pacific to the event.

The IGF activity is mainly:

  1. Education and training in IG issues of relevance to the Pacific with participation including the IGF DC-SIDS, PICISOC members and active At-Large participants in the Pacific region.
  2. An opportunity for the ccTLD managers who are intending to attend the APTLD meeting, will also be able to participate in the IGF to network with other regional members from PICISOC, At-Large and other regional organisations such as APNIC, AP-ITU, PacNOG, PITA, etc.
  3. Similarly, an opportunity for At-Large leadership to network with the regional ccTLD managers to see how we in At-Large can support their work and vice versa for local ALSes.
  4. The Pacific IGF organisations will be able to participate in the Dynamic Coalition of Small Islands Developing States in the Internet Economy – by feeding back reports on their involvement in this event at the DC’s Global IGF session (coordinated by Pacific’s Maureen Hilyard and the Caribbean’s Tracy Hackshaw).
  5. The Fellowship programme will be undertaken by a Fellowship Committee consisting of reps of the funders, and applicants will be required to state their intent for participation in the programme – to show their knowledge of ICANN and At-Large (strategic plan-related) topics that will be incorporated into the programme.

The event is proposed to take place 6-11 September 2021. It was originally planned for 2020 and was postponed, but if it is not possible in 2021, it will probably be virtual rather than postponed again. If the situation “down-under” remains at current low levels and vaccination occurs – apparently it should happen around June – it might be possible. But we cannot be assured of a definite answer with all the covid-variants being discovered.

Requesting: 

$5000 to contribute to support the Fellowship attendance of 3 active Pacific ALS members to attend the Pacific IGF in Fiji.

EURALO

Protecting the Internet’s Unique Identifier System in an Age of Disinformation

(Series of three events: 2 online and 1 at the 2021 Global IGF -  including administrative and travel support)


Joanna Kulesza, EURALOProtecting the Internet’s Unique Identifier System in an Age of Disinformation

The aim of this additional budget request is to support ongoing activities aimed at awareness  raising and capacity building on the global impact of platforms governance and disinformation among the ICANN community  and end-users, to signpost new developments in this highly topical area and to provide inputs for ICANN policy recommendations.

We propose to  run a  series of three events  investigating  the impact of disinformation actors on the Internet’s unique identifier system and the response by public authorities and private actors. Disinformation is a geopolitical issue involving  coordinated activity, often across borders. Disinformation actors target the Internet’s unique identifier system, often  with malicious activity. We seek to explore whether this activity might fall into the non-exclusive catalogue of DNS Abuse. Enforcement actions against disinformation may seek assistance from the ICANN community.  How do these factors impact on the Internet ecosystem and what concerns are raised by the users? In this context, how can ICANN protect the Internet as an open and interconnected system?   

The proposed agenda targets both: advancing the multistakeholder model and a better representation of end user interests. It also falls directly into the global geopolitical discussions around platform regulation and their impact onto the existing Internet governance model. The project will  seek to identify end user interests as a mean to advancing the multistakeholder model and, supporting the global public interest. It will deepen understanding of how disinformation actors operate, and how enforcement actions are implemented, and in that regard it   will contribute to ICANN’s strategic objective of addressing the geopolitics affecting ICANN’s mission and policy development.

We will plan and run a series of three events. We will invite speakers from the ICANN community  to address the issues and  share their  experiences. They will include registries and users that have been affected, as well as external actors who could include law enforcement authorities,  regulatory bodies, and external experts.  Two online events will be culminated by a face-to-face meeting during the IGF planned for December of 2021 in Katowice, Poland.

A series of 2 online events (webinars)  in the autumn of 2021, ,  and a communication plan building towards a face-to-face event (panel discussion)   during IGF 2020.

Deliverables:

  • Two online events (webinars) between June and December (realistically  between September – December) to identify the problems and explore solutions 
  • A communication plan building towards a capacity-building face-to-face event during IGF 2020.
  • Rapporteur’s report on the three sessions.

Requesting: 

  • Administrative  support
  • Liaise with IGF;
  • Manage communications
  • with ICANN users and other relevant stakeholders (email shots, social media)
  • Domain / DNS seizures;
  • Registry perspective;
  • End user community representatives;
  • Experts on disinformation activity;  
  • Communications – email shots and social media. Promotional web page. Event registration.
  • Web conferencing facilities and technical manager for webinars using Zoom or similar conferencing platform.
  • Web streaming depending on facilities available at IGF.
  • Travel support for panelists’ travel to venue, and accommodation, assuming that travel will be back to normal by December.

    Support for organiser travel ( London – Poland), accommodation ( 3 nights),  per diem expenses.

EURALOInternet-of-Things (IoT) and the Increasing Governance Challenges Ahead (Workshop at the 2021 Global IGF)EURALO (Wale Bakare)Internet-of-Things (IoT) and the Increasing Governance Challenges Ahead

This is a request for support of a EURALO Workshop at the 2021 IGF.

The IoT evolution includes a broad range of industries, including the automotive, finance, consumer electronic devices, retail services, manufacturing, agriculture and other sectors important for sustainable development of the humanity. Central to the solutions and deployments of IoT is unified communication. The unified communication relies heavily on the All-IP-Based scheme for end-to-end delivery of IoT solutions.

All-IP-Based Deployment: what about the Internet architecture evolution? All things Internet rely on implementation and deployment as a set of unified protocols, numbering and addressing. What is the role of numbering and naming in IoT environment?

Workshop's themes:

- what is IoT, how to move the public perception from “smart coffee machine” to industry 4.0?

- evolution of IoT protocols and networks and impact on governance

- IoT (small and big) data parsing, building behaviour models and future risks to privacy of individuals

- cross border IoT (IIoT) data exchange and role of governments

- Critical infrastructure: bikes vs. nuclear plants. How do we manage critical objects? Do we really want to connect everything to the Internet?

- IP-less communications: All-IP-Based is not a religion, but business approach. At what conditions is there no need to All-IP-Based devices?

- Proprietary protocols and war of standards. ISO vs RFC, history repeats or lessons learned?

EURALODiversity in ICANN Leadership bodies

The diversity includes a broad range of data. To enhance diversity, we need to be able to collect those data.

It will be useful to gather the data both from an historical point of view and from a current and future situation.

All the ICANN leadership bodies can be concerned but the first one to be discuss (as the data are already collected and in the last mile to be analyzed) can/must be the Board of ICANN.

In future steps (specifically going to a workshop during 2021 IGF) we will need to take into account other leadership bodies of other Internet Governance structure (Internet Society, IETF, IGF MAG…).

Workshop's themes:

- what is Diversity (based on the WS2 ccwg-ICANN accountability document)?

- what are the data that need to be collected?

- evolution of diversity in various ICANN leadership groups

- how to enhance diversity in ICANN leadership groups?

- role of the NomCom to enhance diversity?

IGF global were organized in 2017 in Geneva (Switzerland – Europe), in 2018 in Paris (France – Europe), in 2019 in Berlin (Germany – Europe), virtually in 2020 and virtually will be organized in 2021 in Katowice (Poland – Europe).

IGF Global face-to-face is organized for the 4th years in a row in Europe but for the 1st time in Eastern Europe.

To allow the participation of At-Large and organize its presence during Global IGF each of the last 3 years EURALO used one on its crop slot.

This proposal is to leave a crop slot to Euralo and to allow a new opportunity for At-Large to be more involved in Eastern part of Europe (covering both EU and AP).

As ICANN is now very much organized around 3 pillars: ICANN Board, ICANN Org. & ICANN Community.
The global ICANN budget for IGF global must be split equally between the 3 groups: ICANN Board, ICANN Org. & ICANN Community.

Part of the ICANN Community budget will be used by At-Large in the following way.

At-Large delegation proposal for IGF Global in Poland (Katowice 2021):

  • Chair of ALAC
  • Chair of Euralo
  • Chair of O&E
  • If more budget is available, the At-Large delegation will add the 5 Co-Chairs of E&O (one per ICANN regions)
