Asia-Pacific Regional Initiatives on Telecommunications

Project No 9RAS10035
Title Asia-Pacific Regional Initiatives on Telecommunications
Description
In the Asia-Pacific Region, the ITU is presently implementing numerous activities and country specific actions relating to telecommunication/ICT policy and regulatory cooperation, rural communications/infrastructure development, NGN planning, disaster/emergency communications, digital broadcasting and unique telecommunication/ICT needs of Pacific Islands and Small Island Developing States (SIDS).
The focus of this project will be to continue these activities while maintaining the collaborative efforts between the Department of Broadband Communications and the Digital Economy (DBCDE) and ITU in assisting members within the Asia-Pacific Region with relevant telecommunications assistance, such as organizing trainings and workshops, and providing country specific actions in response to specific ICT related needs.
To implement activities that would work towards addressing these needs, DBCDE and ITU have signed a MoU in March 2010 wherein a contribution of CHF 591'000 has been made by DBCDE. In addition, Projects 9RAS06021, 9RAS07023, and 9RAS05019 have been successfully implemented and the remaining funds from each project originating from DBCDE (or formerly known as DCITA) will be transferred to this particular project. Details of the activities that will be carried out under this project are described herein.
