Welcome to ICANN's Accountability Indicators!

In the spirit of accountability and transparency, the indicators show the latest progress toward achieving ICANN’s strategy. The strategy was developed with the community. It has five objectives, each of which contains a set of goals. Teams from across the organization work together on projects and activities that support each goal.

Charts are interactive and allow you to drill down to see more data.

Are you interested in learning how the ICANN organization is meeting its goals?

We’ve created an easy to use Accountability Indicators platform to help keep you informed of our progress. Let’s see how it works.

Browse this menu to find the topic you’re interested in. Let’s say it’s financial operations. Here, you’ll find a lot of information. For example, let’s take a look at the operating expenses overview chart.

Here, you can even drill down on an expense category, like travel & meetings, to focus on just those costs. Or, maybe you’re interested in learning how many people participate in the Fellowship and NextGen program. Click on the legend here, to see data by region. We’d love to hear your comments and suggestions about this new platform.

We’ll be making continuous improvements based on your feedback. Visit  to begin exploring.
