*Strategy, Planning, Governance, Assessment & Turnaround*


  25 February 2014

More than 40 diverse practitioners, subject matter experts and thought
leaders have been working together since October 2013 as members of the
ICANN Strategy Panels to support development of ICANN's strategic and
operational future.

Strategy Panels are advisory in nature and report to the ICANN President
and CEO. Their quintessential objective is to inform and support ICANN's
planning process. As highlighted at the opening ceremony at ICANN's public
meeting Durban (July 2013), the Strategy Panels' work and output is
designed to be informative and will not go straight to implementation.

Each of the four panels has now published its draft recommendations, which
are being translated into the five additional UN languages and are open for
public comment<http://www.icann.org/en/news/public-comment/strategy-panels-25feb14-en.htm>.
The recommendations are varied and wide-reaching, from partnering in a
study to define an architectural vision for DNS in 2020 to organizing
participants by topic rather than constituency groups to adapting ICANN's
cultural to a multi-lingual and multi-cultural one. Highlights of
recommendations by each panel are included below. For more information,
please refer to each panel's draft report.

be held in early March 2014. A public session also will be conducted at the
upcoming ICANN 49 meeting in Singapore (March 2014). Details will be shared
in due course. Public comments and output will help inform ICANN's
strategic and operational plans.
