At the Plenipotentiary Conference, the fundamental role of ITU in providing a global perspective in regard to the information society was recognized by Member States, which also stressed the importance of ITU as an active and relevant contributor to the WSIS process (Res. PLEN/7).

The Plenipotentiary Conference invited the Council Working Group on WSIS to see to it that ITU makes a contribution to the second meeting of WSIS PrepCom in February 2003 comprising proposals for ITU substantive input, including to the WSIS declaration of principles and action plan (Dec. PLEN/1).

The Working Group held its first meeting on 21 September 2002 and adopted a report that was submitted to the last meeting of the 2002 Council in Marrakesh.
