JAS WG Milestone Report and Accompanying Addenda
Explanation/Background: The Milestone Report [PDF, 1.2 MB] and accompanying Addenda [PDF, 1.07 MB] deals with a very important issue: how can ICANN assist applicants from developing economies to increase their participation in the new generic Top-Level Domain (New gTLD) Program?
A Working Group (WG) formed by ICANN stakeholders has been working since April 2010 to address this issue. This followed a Resolution from ICANN Board of Directors in Nairobi, on March 2010 that asked ICANN's stakeholder community "...to develop a sustainable approach to providing support to applicants requiring assistance in applying for and operating new gTLDs."
The Report produced by this Working Group offers recommendations on how ICANN should develop a sustainable approach to providing support to applicants from developing economies requiring assistance in applying for and operating new gTLDs Registries. The Report proposes initial criteria for qualification as well as several other types of support to be considered, for example, technical, informational.
