Title Assistance in Telecommunication/ICT in ASP
Description The Department of Broadband Communications and the Digital Economy (DBCDE) contributes CHF 591,000 to the ITU Development Sector (ITU D-Sector). A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and this project document signed by DBCDE and the ITU govern the funding arrangements and activities to be implemented utilizing these funds. The activities are implemented by the ITU Development Sector Regional office for the Asia-Pacific Region (ASP) in Bangkok. In addition to the contribution of CHF 591,000, the available funds for this project include the remaining funds transferred from a previous Australian funded project (Project 9RAS09031) which was successfully implemented in 2010. In the ASP Region, the ITU is implementing various activities under the Hyderabad Action Plan (HAP) adopted at the World Telecommunication Development Conference in 2010. Activities include regional events and country specific actions relating to all aspects of telecommunication/ICT development. This project document aims to support and facilitate these planned activities as well as any new initiatives requested by ASP member administrations. Key areas of focus include the five Programmes and the Asia-Pacific Regional Initiatives identified in the HAP. This includes thematic areas such as telecommunications/ICT policy and regulation, human capacity building, cybersecurity, spectrum management, ICT applications, digital inclusion and emergency communications.
