Proposed Streamlining of FY25 At-Large Funding Requests

  • ICANN has announced its streamlining of the ICANN community resource request process and has encouraged ICANN community groups to use the annual Operations, Planning and Budget process for all of its resource requests.
  • To adapt to the new process, the Operations, Finance, and Budget Working Group (OFB-WG) is evolving its approach to the development, review, and implementation of approved At-Large Funding Requests.
  • All At-Large Funding Requests will need to be submitted through completing an online template which will be reviewed by the OFB-WG. 
  • The OFB-WG will review the submitted At-Large Funding Requests based on ALAC Criteria (see below).
  • The OFB-WG will develop the implementation plan of any At-Large Funding Request that is approved in collaboration with those who developed the request.

Journalist gathering for a briefing of the Internet ecosystem and ICANN

Mohammad Kawsar Uddin (APRALO)

Purpose and scope of the proposed activity

I observed that Journalists are the marginalized community in the ICANN Ecosystem. We need to educate journalist community about the Internet Ecosystem and ICANN Activities.

Training of multistakeholder members on missions, policy issues and how to engage in ICANN activities during 2025 GhanaSIG fellowshipRaymond Mamattah

Purpose and scope of the proposed activity

This activity is aimed at training the participants in the 5th edition of the Ghana School on Internet Governance (2025 GhanaSIG) fellowship event on the missions of ICANN, policy issues and the various ways they can engage in ICANN activities.

Alignment of the proposed activity with the ICANN Mission, the ICANN Strategic Plan for fiscal years 2021-2025, the At-Large top 3 FY25 ICANN Operating Plan and Budget priorities, and the FY25 At-Large strategic priority activities.

The participants are mostly selected from various stakeholder groups including End users, Civil Society, Security Service etc. and are provided with the necessary training. From this, they are also taught about the various ways they can actively participate in the ecosystem in order to make the Internet remain a one world and one Internet. We also train them on how they can engage in the various activities within the Internet governance ecosystem, especially ICANN.

During the online learning and training stage, the participants are made to take 9 courses from the ICANN Learn portal including the following courses:

1. 200.1: Visual Guide to the History of the Internet 2. 102.1: Introduction to ICANN 3. 602.1: DNS Fundamentals 4. 302.1: Registrant Basics: Essentials for Domain Name Holders 5. 502.1: Get to Know the GNSO 6. 201.1: Digital Trade and Global Internet Governance 7. 500.1: Policy Development Fundamentals 8. 605.1: Introduction to Universal Acceptance (UA) 9. 103.1: ICANN Public Meetings for Newcomers

Demonstrate how the proposed activity is related to ongoing or anticipated ICANN and ALAC policy work.

This training is highly related to ICANN and ALAC policy works because it brings in a lot of people from various multistakeholder groups from Ghana and the sub-region into ICANN. Though the fellowship has a focus on Ghana we always have participants from the sub-region. For example, in the 4th edition held last year, we got a participant who joined us all the way from Zambia physically in Ghana after successfully taking all the online learning courses from the ICANN learn. We also in the past had participants from other countries such as Nigeria, Benin, Ivory Coast who took part in the GhanaSIG fellowship training.

At-Large Leadership Strategic Meeting Jonathan Zuck

Purpose and scope of the proposed activity

The purpose of the At-Large Leadership Strategic Meeting is twofold: 1) to allow a dedicated time for the At-Large Leadership, consisting of the 15 ALAC members, ALAC Liaisons (ccNSO, GAC, GNSO, SSAC), and 10 RALO leaders to develop strategic At-Large priorities for the upcoming year; and 2) to facilitate the onboarding process for incoming leaders and create a basis for a strong and united leadership At-Large leadership team. 

The scope of the At-Large Leadership Strategic Meeting would include a one day face-to-face meeting either the day before the start of the ICANN Annual General Meeting (AGM) or the day following the close of the AGM to allow the leaders of the ALAC, Liaisons, and RALOs to develop strategic priorities and the process for their implementation. Meeting face-to-face would also allow the At-Large leadership to begin their team-building, engage in training, and provide onboarding activities for incoming leaders.

Alignment of the proposed activity with the ICANN Mission, the ICANN Strategic Plan for fiscal years 2021-2025, the At-Large top 3 FY25 ICANN Operating Plan and Budget priorities, and the FY25 At-Large strategic priority activities.

TBD

Demonstrate how the proposed activity is related to ongoing or anticipated ICANN and ALAC policy work.

The At-Large Leadership Strategic Meeting will offer a dedicated time for the At-Large Leadership to assess the previous year’s At-Large Strategic Priority Activities and develop either updated or new priority activities based on ICANN’s strategic priorities related to policy, operations and governance, and community organization. 

The At-Large Leadership Strategic Meeting will also provide the basis for the strengthening of the At-Large Leadership team, facilitate training, and offer onboarding opportunities and resources.

Training

Objective - Audience - Please describe the target audience for the proposed activity (e.g., age, gender, region,  sector, skills, etc)

The audience of the At-Large Leadership Strategic Meeting will include the 15 members of the ALAC, the four ALAC Liaisons to the ccNSO, GAC, GNSO, and SSAC, and two RALO leadership members from each of the five RALOs for a maximum of 29 At-Large leaders.

Outcomes - Please describe the expected impact of the proposed activity - Note FY25 criteria - activities should make the entire At-Large community more effective in policy positions and /or advice development, operations and engagement.

Becoming a full participant in ICANN community activities is a daunting task. Accordingly, the intended objective of a strategic session, similar to those scheduled by other groups in the community, is the full onboarding and orientation of the new leadership team of the At-Large community. The At-Large community is more diverse geographically, economically, culturally, etc., than any other community within the ICANN ecosystem. There is a complex structure of RALOs and ALSs and diverse responsibilities throughout the communications channels that include not only policy participation but outreach, mobilization and message amplification. Ideally a one or two day strategic session would facilidate a well prepared leadership team.


Evaluation - Metrics- Please describe what metrics will be used to measure the impact of the proposed activity.

Metrics will include ongoing evaluation of the At-Large strategic priorities and implementation plans developed during this activity, including regular assessment of their implementation.

Estimated funds requested.

The request for the At-Large Leadership Strategic Meeting incorporates as many efficiencies as possible. 

Given that the activity will take place either a day prior to, or after, the AGM, the requested logistics include a meeting room, sleeping rooms in a hotel connected to the ICANN Public meeting, one day’s per diem, and catering are required. Travel costs will not be required as At-Large leaders are already funded to the AGM. 

This will also save time on behalf of the At-Large leaders as no additional travel time is needed. 

This event is seen to meet the criteria. 

Seen as part of the CIP activities. 

Consider adding the At-Large Board Seat 15 holder.

Global End User SurveyJonathan Zuck

Purpose and scope of the proposed activity

The purpose of the Global End User Survey is to identify end user concerns and to facilitate priorities. As it endeavors to represent the interests of individual end users, the At-Large community employs a number of different tools to asses those interests including discussions, regional feedback, community surveys and outreach. However, it would behoove the At-Large community to go to the end users themselves, on a periodic basis, to assess the level of concern and stakes on a variety of issues related to the DNS. These topics would include DNS Abuse, Universal Acceptance, Geographic Names, representation in the industry and much more.

Ideally, such a global end user survey would coincide with the fourth At-Large Summit (ATLAS IV) and help the community to establish positions and priorities for the coming years. Such a survey would be a random survey, conducted by an outside firm, not the self-selected surveys, in regular use.

Alignment of the proposed activity with the ICANN Mission, the ICANN Strategic Plan for fiscal years 2021-2025, the At-Large top 3 FY25 ICANN Operating Plan and Budget priorities, and the FY25 At-Large strategic priority activities.

This is aligned in a number of ways, not the least of which is incorporating end user feedback into ALAC priorities inside the ICANN ecosystem. In addition, such a survey, if timed well, could contribute to community messaging surrounding the future of the multi-stakholder model as well as provide insights into message strategy for the new round.

Demonstrate how the proposed activity is related to ongoing or anticipated ICANN and ALAC policy work.

The At-Large community is tasked with representing the interests of end users in ICANN policy development. Nearly every aspect of DNS policy has implications for end users. The upcoming round is a good example. with a better understanding of what end users are lacking, in terms of local and linguistic content, the At-Large community would be in a better position to help evangelize IDNs.

Objective - Audience - Please describe the target audience for the proposed activity (e.g., age, gender, region,  sector, skills, etc)

Non-engaged individual end users from around the world.

Outcomes - Please describe the expected impact of the proposed activity - Note FY25 criteria - activities should make the entire At-Large community more effective in policy positions and /or advice development, operations and engagement.

The Outcome will be prioritization of ALAC activities based on actual feedback from the end user community. Some of these priorities will be policy related, messaging for outside institutions such as the EU and WISIS and some will be educational on issues such as cybersecurity and DNS Abuse.

Evaluation - Metrics- Please describe what metrics will be used to measure the impact of the proposed activity.

Ideally, the research would provide some actionable tasks for the At-Large community to advocate within ICANN or to execute ourselves (such as education).

Estimated funds requested.


Incorporate additional elements to get more data and more indication on what At-Large should prioritize in terms of policy positions. 

Suggest having this survey be taken every 2 or 3 years.
