ITU projects, using ICT for sustainable development
As stipulated by the ITU Constitution, one of the functions of the ITU Telecommunication Development Sector is to discharge the Union's dual responsibility as a United Nations specialized agency and as a executing agency for implementing projects under the UN development system or other funding arrangements, so as to facilitate and enhance projects related to information and communication technology by offering, organizing and coordinating technical cooperation and assistance activities.
ITU projects make a difference in the lives of people and offer sustainable and innovative solutions around the world to achieve development through ICT. ITU has longstanding experience in the design, development and implementation of ICT related projects.
