WSIS Forum 2012: "WSIS+10 review process: Monitoring the WSIS Targets” and “Measuring E-Waste"

Geneva, Switzerland, Room XI, ILO Headquarters, 14 May 2012, 14h45-18h00



The first session provided an overview of the Partnership’s work on measuring the WSIS targets in the context of the WSIS+10 review process. It presented concrete examples of progress made towards monitoring the targets and highlighted the data gaps that still need to be addressed. Besides presentations by international and regional stakeholders, the session featured the national experience of a country (Mexico) that is tracking the WSIS targets. Finally, the Partnership presented a roadmap for the WSIS+10 review process.

The second session focused on the measurement of e-waste. It looked at the importance of having comprehensive data on the life-cycle and disposal of e-waste, which so far are not available at the global level. The panelists discussed the challenges in developing indicators related to measuring e-waste, and the compilation of reliable data at the national level.
