The BSG programme is a continuation of ITU’s historic mission and concern about the digital divide and development disparities in information and communication technologies. The overarching goal of the BSG programme is to facilitate increased participation of developing countries in standardization, to ensure that developing countries experience the economic benefits of associated technological development, and to better reflect the requirements and interests of developing countries in the standards-development process. Check out the BSG flyer
to find out how your organizaton can contribute to the BSG activities.
TSB's budget is extremely limited, so additional contributions are essential in order to fulfil the requirements of Resolution 44. The BSG Fund has been created to finance the work programme outlined in Resolution 44 of WTSA 2008 with the objective to facilitate the participation of developing countries in the ICT standards development process. Contributions have been received from Cisco, Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning of Republic of Korea, Nokia Siemens Networks, Microsoft, and Canada. The use of the contribution for specific purposes is made only with the agreement of the sponsor.
