ITU in collaboration with the Ministry of Administration and Digitization and the Office of Electronic Communication, Republic of Poland organized the ITU Regional Development Forum and Regional Seminar for Europe and CIS Countries that was held back to back from 7 to 9 May 2012 in Warsaw, Republic of Poland.

Regional Development Forum (RDF) provided an opportunity for high level dialogue between BDT and decision-makers of ITU Member States as well as Sector Members on key challenges and actions related to the spectrum management and digital dividend, to better assess strategic orientations that may have an impact on BDTs regional workplan in between World Telecommunication Development Conferences.

The Seminar was an integral part of the European Regional Initiative on Digital Broadcasting for Europe that searches to provide a basis for the exchange of best practices encountered on the path of digital migration, and the ways to maximize the economic and social benefits of the digital dividend. It also considered how to further develop a unified approach in order to enhance the advantages that it would bring to the region of Central-Eastern Europe. The Workshop discussed, in particular:

  • Digital terrestrial television transition;

  • Legislative issues;

  • Maximizing the value and benefits of the digital dividend;

  • Harmonization of digital dividend spectrum;

  • Costs of transition;

  • Borderline frequency migration.

This meeting was targeted at the staff of the Ministries and Regulatory Authorities, in particular those who require very good understanding of the ITU role and functions in the telecommunication/ICT sector for accomplishing their tasks.
