ITU consultation on the use of ICT

The ITU Council Working Group on International Internet-related Public Policy Issues (CWG-Internet) has launched an open consultation on the use of new and emerging telecommunications/ICT technologies for sustainable development.

CWG-Internet encourages all interested stakeholders to participate in consultations, in particular to answer the following questions:

  1. How will new and emerging telecommunications/ICTs impact both the internet and sustainable development, including the digital economy?
  2. What are the opportunities and challenges for the adoption and growth of the new and emerging telecommunications/ICTs and internet?
  3. How can governments and the other stakeholders harness the benefits of new and emerging telecommunications/ICTs?
  4. What are the best practices for promoting human skills, institutional capacity, innovation and investment for new and emerging telecommunications/ICTs?

The consultations last until 3 January 2020. The next stage will be an open consultation meeting at the ITU headquarters in Geneva (it will be conducted in English and remote participation is possible).
