One of the Board's high-priority topics for 2020 is to continue working on the "Enhancing the Effectiveness of ICANN's Multistakeholder Model" initiative, building on the work that the community has completed to date. The objective of the "Enhancing the Effectiveness of ICANN's Multistakeholder Model – Next Steps" paper is to build upon existing work taking place across the ICANN community to holistically address the community-identified priority topics and enhance the effective and efficient functioning of ICANN's multistakeholder model. This paper describes work currently underway, identifies gaps in those efforts that would benefit from inclusion in this effort, and suggests a path toward addressing each of those gaps, including proposed work processes or mechanisms, how they may be applied, and which groups may be best positioned to lead those efforts.
The Board is seeking the community's input on the following: the work plan; the remaining work areas, and the evaluation mechanism.
