Partnership on Measuring ICT for Development

The Role of ITU


ITU is an active member of the Partnership on Measuring ICT for Development, has lead several of the Partnership’s Task Groups, and has been a Steering Committee member from the beginning.
 
From the core list of indicators identified by the Partnership on Measuring ICT for Development, ITU is responsible for collecting the infrastructure and access indicators, as well as the indicators on access to and use of ICTs by households and individuals.
 
To improve data availability and comparability, ITU works closely with its Member States, particularly the Ministries in charge of telecommunication, regulatory agencies, and national statistical offices. ITU provides technical assistance to enhance the capacity of national statistical offices.
