Regional Preparatory Meetings of the World Telecommunication Development Conference 2006  


At the World Telecommunication Development Conference (Istanbul, 2002), participants underlined the need for greater regional coordination to facilitate a coordinated approach and to engage members in the WTDC process early on (see Resolution 31 (Istanbul, 2002)).

In response

to this need, a series of preparatory meetings were organized during 2005. The objective was to adopt appropriate development strategies at regional and subregional level, based on initiatives and projects as well as on questions and topics relevant to the development requirements and priorities of the countries of every region.

The output

of each preparatory meeting was tabled at a Coordination Meeting to take place in conjunction with the meeting of the Telecommunication Development Advisory Group (Geneva, 12-16 December 2005). The role of the Coordination Meeting was to consolidate the coordinated proposals to be tabled at WTDC-06 in Doha (Qatar) for the preparation of the Doha Action Plan. This preparatory process also facilitated the development of a comprehensive four-year rolling operational plan for the Telecommunication Development Sector.
