What will the Net bring to the developing world? OECD discussion by Kieren McCarthy

ICANN is not responsible in any way for the expansion or promotion of the Internet as a network but inevitably the organisation is asked what it can do, and philosophically at least, we are dedicated to ensuring the network’s many benefits are enjoyed by as many people around the globe as possible. It is also in our interests to make sure that the organisation is in a position to effectively engage the “next billion users”.Usually, when asked what ICANN can do to help expand access to the Internet, we point to many of the other organisations that do concern themselves with this work, most of whom have representatives that attend ICANN meetings and involve themselves in our policy-making processes. As such, we would like to draw your attention to an open consultation that the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is having this Thursday.
