As part of the organization's ongoing efforts to increase accountability and transparency, ICANN has created these searchable wiki pages to provide the public with easy-to-access information on every substantive resolution approved by the Board of Directors. Thus far, we have loaded information on over 800 resolutions approved by the Board from 1998 - 2009.

Each Board resolution has a public wiki page that provides basic information, including when it was approved, what it's about, and the status and details of the resulting implementation actions.  Additional information and links to related resolutions also are provided, enabling the public to research Board resolutions, track implementation of every Board action, and quickly find more information on topics of interest addressed by the Board. 

A comment box at the bottom of each wiki page allows individuals to share information about each resolution and its implementation. ICANN hopes to harness the power of the community to add to the basic information provided.

Soon all 2010 Board resolutions will be added to this wiki, and starting in 2011 all subsequent resolutions will be entered shortly after the Board approves them.  This will provide the public with the ability to track implementation of Board resolutions as actions unfold. 

We hope you find this new tool useful.

Important note: The Board Resolutions are as reported in the Board Meeting Transcripts, Minutes & Resolutions portion of ICANN's website. Only the words contained in the Resolutions themselves represent the official acts of the Board. The explanatory text provided through this wiki (including the summary, implementation actions, identification of related resolutions, and additional information) is an interpretation or an explanation that has no official authority and does not represent the purpose behind the Board actions, nor does any explanations or interpretations modify or override the Resolutions themselves.
