Brief Overview:

Purpose: The purpose of this public comment is to seek community input on ICANN’s draft five-year strategic plan for fiscal years 2021 through 2025.

Current Status: Following community, Board, and ICANN organization inputs on key trends anticipated to impact ICANN in the coming years, the Board conducted an analysis. There were significant similarities across all the trend sessions that naturally converge into five primary focus areas: security; governance; unique identifier systems; geopolitics; and financials. These focus areas were shared with the community leading into and during ICANN63 in Barcelona.

Coming out of ICANN63 and following dialogue with and additional input from the community, the Board has developed a draft of ICANN’s strategic plan for fiscal years 2021-2025, to present for community consultation. This document includes ICANN’s mission, a vision of the future state of ICANN, and a set of strategic objectives and goals, along with desired outcomes and associated risks.
