ICANN acknowledges that third-party organizations offering support may have their own independent criteria in selecting candidates for support, including their own criteria on countries. Although the menu below offers an extensive list of countries to choose from, ICANN encourages candidates seeking support from the following internationally agreed upon United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs list (http://unstats.un.org/unsd/methods/m49/m49regin.htm):

  • Least developed countries: category 199;
  • Landlocked Developing Countries: category 432;
  • Small Island Developing States: category 722;
  • Indigenous Peoples, as described in Article 1 of Convention No. 169 of the International Labour Organization and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

    ICANN acknowledges that third-party organizations offering support may have their own criteria and independently choose to provide assistance to Support Candidates that qualify for it under the eligibility requirements established by those third parties themselves.
