From 1-4 September 2014, the Third International
Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS) will be held in Apia, Samoa. In the framework of this once-in-a-decade event, ITU is organizing various events to highlight the role of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and in particular broadband technologies to advance sustainable development:
Side-event: Bridging Broadband Barriers for SIDS Sustainable Development, High Level Dialogue - 2 September 2014, Faleata Sports Complex
- Addressing Connectivity in SIDS - 29 August 2014, Faleata Golf Course
- Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation for SIDS, a Multi-Stakeholder Dialogue - 30 August 2014, Faleata Sports Complex
This will offer the opportunity to launch a multistakeholder partnership, and especially the partnership first project of "Satellite Connectivity for Development and Emergency Telecommunications in SIDS of the Pacific region" that will later be replicated in SIDS of other regions.
We invite anybody interested in the topic to join and contribute to these events.
