(Yes)(10,045)(to be managed by Benedetta Rossi, Manager for Policy Support & Community Services, ICANN Policy Development Support)
The success of similar pilot efforts and the opportunity presented for leadership recruitment from under served and underrepresented countries qualifies this request for support. Approval is granted for 1 traveller per ICANN Public Meeting in FY19 (i.e. ICANN63, 64, and 65) from an underserved and underrepresented country within the applicable ICANN meeting region. Approval of this request is contingent upon coordination with ICANN’s Policy Development Support Team and on the submission of a written report within 30 days of travel which addresses how the opportunity met the request objectives and each itemized metric as per the community request. The report is to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org and is a condition of future resource allocations. Unused travel allocations may not be carried over to future meetings or the next fiscal year. Approved travel means economy airfare + hotel + per diem for 1 traveller as noted above.
FY19-09-NCSG-Capacity Building Program for NCSG/NCUC/NPOC Request for the continuation of the FY18 NCSG/NCUC/NPOC Capacity Building Program aimed at consensus building within ICANN PDP/WG environment
(Yes – partial approval)(10,900)(to be managed by Benedetta Rossi, Manager for Policy Support & Community Services, ICANN Policy Development Support)
Deliverables from the first NCSG/NCUC/NPOC Capacity Building Program (FY18-25) included the production of materials which are to be made accessible on demand via ICANN Learn. The ICANN Organization, in collaboration with the NCSG, NCUC and NPOC, will evaluate the success of the FY18 program including the use and usability of ICANN Learn. This ABR allocation is for the delivery of another round of training via webinars, in keeping with the FY18 experience, with a professional trainer, on the understanding that the training will be complementary to the materials to be created for ICANN Learn based on the FY18 ABR allocation. The funds allocated do not include travel support or a face-to-face component. The NCSG should consider incorporating feedback from their experience in FY18, when collaborating with ICANN Organization and the professional trainer for this FY19 project.
