Internet Technical Leaders Welcome IANA Globalisation Progress

 

The leaders of the Internet technical organisations responsible for coordination of the Internet infrastructure (IETF, IAB, RIRs, ccTLD ROs, ICANN, ISOC, and W3C), welcome the US Government’s announcement of the suggested changes related to the IANA functions contract.

The roles on policy development processes of the Internet technical organisations and ICANN’s role as administrator of the IANA functions, remain unchanged.

The transition of the US Government stewardship has been envisaged since the early days of IANA functions contract. This transition is now feasible due to the maturity of the Internet technical organisations involved in performing their respective roles related to the IANA functions, and ICANN will facilitate a global, multi-stakeholder process to plan for the transition.

The strength and stability of the IANA functions within the above organizations (which make up the Internet technical community) are critical to the operation of the Internet. The processes around the IANA functions have always been carefully specified in the communities that our organisations represent. The IANA functions are faithfully administered by ICANN. We are committed to continuing our proven, community-driven processes as we engage in this transition. Our communities are already considering proposals to progress the transition.

Our organizations are committed to open and transparent multi-stakeholder processes. We are also committed to further strengthening our processes and agreements related to the IANA functions, and to building on the existing organisations and their roles. The Internet technical community is strong enough to continue its role, while assuming the stewardship function as it transitions from the US Government.

AFRINIC-21 to be held in Mauritius

 

Further to our Call for Hosting for AFRINIC-21, our 21st Public Policy Meeting, we would like to announce that this meeting will be held in Mauritius from 22-28 November 2014.

While it was intended that AFRINIC-21 would take place in an African country that submitted a proposal to host the meeting, the decision to relocate this meeting to Mauritius was made in conjunction with the AFRINIC Board due to logistical and budgetary constraints.

 We would like to thank all the countries that expressed interest in hosting AFRINIC-21. We will be happy to receive their proposals for the soon to come Call for hosting of AIS 15/AFRINIC 22 and AFRINIC 23.

We are taking this opportunity to remind all interested applicants that the first meeting of every year takes place in May and the second one in November.

The hosting requirements will include the Terms of References (ToR) for the Call for Proposals and Budget information. AFRINIC will soon announce the local host for AFRINIC-21.

Team AFRINIC will be happy to respond to your questions.
