Strategic Goal Six: Disseminating Information and Know-how
ITU is a leading source of authoritative research and statistics for the
telecommunication sector for Member States and territories around the world. It has anticipated, identified and explored
developments in telecommunications over recent decades and its publications remain key works of reference for the
industry as a whole. ITU maintains an active workshop programme disseminating information and a strong network of
contacts among the leading experts in the field, helping ensure that it remains at the forefront of trends in the
industry. ITU also organizes regular seminars on radiocommunication matters to improve knowledge and familiarity with
the application of the Radio Regulations.
Strategic Goal Six
Disseminating information and know-how to provide the
membership and the wider community, particularly developing countries, with capabilities to leverage the benefits of,
inter alia, private-sector participation, competition, globalization, network security and efficiency and
technological change in their ICT sector, and enhancing the capacity of ITU Member States, in particular developing
countries, for innovation in ICTs.
ITU's website has also been enhanced with a wealth of online resources and publications, interactive portals and online
databases. New online collaborative working methods have been introduced, including wikis, blogs, webcasts, RSS feeds,
e-mail newsletters and online access to many working documents, conferences and meetings, to improve the participation
of the membership in ITU's activities. The overall web visibility of ITU content has increased significantly over the
last two years.
