Activities

LACTLD has organized various workshops to help its members gain a better understanding of ccTLDs. The most notable of these was one organized in Colombia regarding the Economic/Commercial aspects for ccTLDs. Other workshops organized by LACTLD include Advanced Registry Operations Course Details, Workshop on Technical Aspects for ccTLDs, Attack and Response Contingency Planning Workshop, Legal Issues and Policies for ccTLD Workshop, and many others. [7]

LACTLD and ICANN

LACTLD was supportive of the functioning of ICANN as a private entity. It was of the view that, with ICANN, it would be easy to coordinate with the entire global Internet community. It was also of the view that ICANN would help to ensure that protocol parameters, IP numbers, and domain names were operated appropriately. LACTLD also supported the creation of the ccNSO, an institution within ICANN, that would help identify the entire volume of ccTLDs in general and the issues related to it in particular.[8]
