The WSIS Trust Fund was established in 2011 with the adoption of
Plenipotentiary Conference Resolution 140. Council Resolution
1332 as modified by ITU Council in May 2016 takes into account the outcomes of the United Nations General Assembly Overall Review of the Implementation of WSIS Outcomes and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and resolves to maintain the fund to support ITU activities to facilitate the implementation of WSIS outcomes, calls for partnerships and strategic alliances, and invites the ITU Membership to make voluntary contributions to the fund.
Since its creation, information on the WSIS Trust Fund and stakeholder contributions has been reflected this—the dedicated website of the WSIS Fund in Trust. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have contributed towards the Trust Fund to date for their dedication and commitment towards WSIS Implementation, in particular the WSIS Forum. The outcomes of the WSIS Forum 2017 can be found
here. Moving towards 2025, and following the multi-stakeholder approach, the WSIS Forum will build upon the outcomes of the WSIS+10 Review and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
I would, therefore, like to encourage all ITU membership to make a contribution to the fund for the year 2018, and to invite all stakeholders to partner with the WSIS Forum 2018. You will find below the WSIS Forum 2018 Partnership Packages.
