Latin American and Caribbean TLD Association (LACTLD)
LACTLD is an association created on the 20th August 1998. Its aim is to represent the region´s interests in domain name issues, promoting Latin American and Caribbean integration, as well as becoming a platform for the cooperation and exchange of information and experiences amongst regional TLDs.
The 8th edition of the LACTLD Report (March 2016) presents the vision of LACTLD’s new General Manager, Andrés Piazza and his working plan for the implementation of LACTLD’s Strategy 2018. In an interview undertaken to Fadi Chehadé a few months before leaving ICANN he provides his unique perspective on Internet governance and the role of ccTLDs. The report addresses the approval of ICANN’s CCWG Accountability proposal and the next steps in the implementation while waiting for the NTIA results. In the dossier section its now the turn of the ccTLDs and the Internet in the Caribbean. In addition there is a landscape of Internet governance for 2016 and the key processes that will shape the post WSIS+10 Agenda. The Chairs and Co-Chairs of the new LACTLD working grouos – policy, commercial, legal and technical – present their working plans. As is customary, the edition provides a regional perspective of the ccTLD domain trends.
