These Opinions touch on issues including management of Internet number resources, encouraging IPv6 adoption, support for Internet Exchange Points (IXPs), multi-stakeholder governance and Enhanced Cooperation.


The five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) - AFRINIC, APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC and RIPE NCC have drafted responses to the five Opinions that relate directly to the RIRs' areas of expertise and coordination. A document containing these responses has been published click here to read the document
