Leaders of the organizations responsible for coordination of the

meeting, they discussed activities underway and exchanged views and 
updates on a range of topics including:

• IETF and W3C efforts to improve overall Internet privacy and security.
• Globalization of the IANA functions.
• The 1net initiative, website and new collaboration forum.
• The “Netmundial” – Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of 
Internet Governance.
• ICANN strategy panels and globalisation efforts.
• Preparations for the 2014 ITU Plenipotentiary Conference .
• Web 25th anniversary and W3C 20th anniversary planning.

There was discussion of the significant progress and momentum that has 
developed since our last meeting, and as well as the need for continued 
engagement of all stakeholders in evolution of the Internet ecosystem. 
The leaders were encouraged by the progress made in many areas, and note 
that there is a lot of work happening in our respective communities, 
driven by the participants and handled with the usual community processes.
