This public comment supports the Draft ICANN Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2021-2025. The Draft Strategic Plan includes a set of five strategic objectives. Strategic Objective #2 addresses ICANN Governance and aims to improve the effectiveness of ICANN's multistakeholder model. The strategic objectives provide guidance for establishing Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Results-oriented, and Time bound (SMART) operating goals and plans to fulfill the vision and deliver on the mission over the five-year horizon of the Strategic Plan.
At ICANN64, to develop a plan to support Strategic Objective # 2, the community engaged in a facilitated conversation about how to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of ICANN's multistakeholder model of governance. Building on the conversation at ICANN64, this public comment invites the community to further define issues that challenge the effectiveness of ICANN's multistakeholder model.
