ICANN73 Community Forum was held virtually, 7-10 March 2022. All sessions were conducted during regular working hours in San Juan, Puerto Rico (Atlantic Standard Time / UTC-4).

The ccNSO has organized various sessions on Domain Name System abuse in recent ICANN Public Meetings. Country code top-level domain managers and others shared their experiences with respect to mitigating DNS abuse, focusing on what ccTLDs do nationally and regionally.

During ICANN72, the conversation shifted to focus on exploring the potential role of the ccNSO itself. Both ccTLDs and other stakeholders suggested activities the ccNSO could undertake to complement existing work being done by the community.

The current proposal builds on previous work during ICANN72 and a ccNSO workshop held in November 2021 when ccTLDs and the broader community suggested areas that the ccNSO should get involved in with respect to DNS abuse. An ad hoc committee under auspices of the ccNSO Council was formed to evaluate the suggestions, and to work on a proposed roadmap. ccNSO Council discussed the draft roadmap during its January meeting and tasked the ad hoc committee to seek ccTLD community feedback at and around ICANN73.
