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
- Allow developing countries to profit from access to new technology development
- Ensure that the requirements of developing countries are taken into account in the development of standards
Contributions have been received from Nokia Siemens Networks, Microsoft, Cisco, Korea Communications Commission and Canada.
The use of the contribution for specific purposes is used only with the agreement of the sponsor.
TSB's budget is extremely limited and so additional contributions are essential in order to fulfil the requirements of Resolution 44.
Should you be interested to contribute to the BSG Fund, you can send an e-mail to bsg[at]itu.int
