With Innovation rising as a priority for policy makers, and based on the outcomes of World Telecommunication Development Conference 2014 and ITU Plenipotentiary Conference 2014, the Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT) has embarked on innovation as one of the Outputs of ITU Development Sector (ITU-D). The main objectives are to strengthen the membership’s capabilities to integrate ICT innovation in their national development agendas, and to promote a culture of innovation.
