In 2004, ICANN released its first strategic plan. July 2005 marks the beginning of the six-month strategic planning cycle to revise and roll forward the three-year plan. An outline of the process for the next six months can be found here.

At the Luxembourg meeting, ICANN conducted a number of consultation sessions seeking the views of the community on the July 2006 - June 2009 Strategic Plan. Sessions were run for SOs, ACs and other constituency groups, and general consultation sessions were conducted in English, French and Spanish. The raw output from these sessions is attached here. An issues paper which summarises this output and the responses that have been received to the questions posted on the site will be released early September.

In addition, a report by the President at the Luxembourg meeting allowed all members of the community to understand the current status of key initiatives.

Members of the ICANN community are invited to contribute to the consultation process by becoming involved through their constituency, supporting organization or advisory committee, or by responding individually to the questions that are being used in the consultation process. This includes both the original set of questions (English | Spanish | French) and additional questions (English | Spanish | French).

If you are responding to these questions via the public comment forum on the web-site, it is not required that you respond to all the questions. Also, if you are responding to these questions via the public comment forum on the website, please refer to the question number (letter and number) at the start of your answer to each question. Please write your responses to <>. The responses can be viewed at

Please respond by Friday 2 September so that your input can be included in the issues paper that will be released in early September.

ICANN Posts Draft of Final Version of Strategic Plan

Development of the July 2006 to June 2009 strategic plan began at the ICANN meeting in Luxembourg in July 2005 and has included extensive consultation with the community through small group workshops in English, French and Spanish, workshops with Supporting Organizations and Advisory committees, public forums at ICANN meetings and public forums on the ICANN website. Based on the input received from the community to previous issues papers and working documents, a version of the plan has been compiled for comment. The document is concise and outlines the five strategic objectives for ICANN for the next three years. This document will inform the Operational Planning consultations which will commence at the meeting in Wellington. It has been posted today so that final comments can be received at the ICANN meeting in Wellington, with a view to having the plan adopted at the Marrakech meeting. The document will be translated into French and Spanish and posted in the near future. Comments can be made on the Comment archives are at
