I presume you mean ccTLD.

I'm afraid the Australian Government does not set international policy
in the DNS area.

If you're interested in a Governmental perspective on international DNS
policy, you can have a look at GAC:
GAC doesn't set DNS policy either, but it can make suggestions to ICANN.

You can find international DNS policies under:
The IANA function is performed by ICANN.
This page also links to:
which is a list of the official ccTLD managers (including Africa).

An organisation which has been active over many years helping
developing nations to get connected to the Internet is ISOC.
But I think ISOC's focus has been more on education & training.
