Call for Contributions 2014

Official Letter (AR, EN, ES, FR, RU, ZH)

The WSIS Trust Fund, established in 2011 following the Plenipotentiary Conference 2010 Resolution 140, offers the opportunity to contribute towards strengthening the implementation of the WSIS outcomes while addressing the needs of the WSIS process and its multistakeholders. The Plenipotentiary Conference 2010 Resolution 140 invites all Member States, Sector Members and Associates to make voluntary contributions to the special trust fund set up by the ITU to support activities relating to the implementation of the WSIS outomes. During Council 2012 and 2013, the importance of the WSIS Trust Fund to ensure efficient and effective implementation was reemphasized in Resolution 1334 (Modified 2012), in particular context to the WSIS+10 Review Process.

Resolution 1334 (Modified 2013) on the ITU Role in the Overall Review of the Implementation of the Outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society resolved that ITU Coordinated WSIS+10 High Level Event, as an extended version of the WSIS Forum, should be held in 2014 and will review the WSIS Outcomes (2003 and 2005) under the ITU's responsibilities and will develop proposals on a new vision beyond 2015, potentially including new targets and an action plan beyond 2015 in the area of ITU's responsibility. The Resolution encourages all membership to contribute to the WSIS Fund in Trust to ensure efficient and effective implementation of the WSIS+10 Review Process

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who contributed towards the trust fund to date for their dedication and commitment towards WSIS Implementation and I encourage all ITU membership to contribute to the WSIS Trust Fund for the year 2014. Your financial contribution is valuable and will help accelerate the implementation of the WSIS-related activities undertaken by ITU.

Official Letter (AR, EN, ES, FR, RU, ZH)

The goals set forth in the outcomes documents of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) are to be achieved by 2015. Noting the expertise and core competencies of ITU in the fields of ICTs, WSIS assigned to the ITU several mandates with reference to the implementation of the WSIS outcomes.

In this context, at the operational and policy level, ITU has been carrying out several tasks, in particular: (a) in its capacity as leading facilitator in coordinating the multistakeholder implementation of the Geneva Plan of Action (Para 109 of TAIS) hosting and co-organizing annual WSIS Forums; (b) Facilitator of Action Lines C2 (Information and communication infrastructure), C5 (Building confidence and security in the use of ICTs), and C6 (Enabling Environment); (c) CoFacilitator of Action Lines C1, C3, C4, C7, and C11; (d) Partner in Action Lines C8 and C9; and (e) rotating Chair and Vice-Chair of the United Nations Group on Information Society (UNGIS) (Para 103 of TAIS); (f) Facilitator of the WSIS Stocktaking Process (Para 120 of TAIS); (g) Lead in Measuring the Information Society (113-119 of TAIS). ITUís contribution and achievements for the period 2005-2010 have been presented as WSIS+5 Report to the 2010 Plenipotentiary Conference (PP-10) and officially taken into account by 192 Member States. In addition a series of annual publications, ITU Contribution to the Implementation of the WSIS Outcomes, provides information on the key WSIS related initiatives and activities carried out by the three sectors of the Union (Standardization, Radiocommunication and the Development Sector) and the General Secretariat.

In light of 2015 as the year set for achieving the WSIS targets and upcoming overall review of the implementation of the WSIS outcomes, PP-10 Resolution 140 on ITUís Role in Implementing the Outcomes of WSIS, PP-10 strengthened the Unionís mandate in relation to WSIS implementation and invited all member states, sector members and associates to participate actively in implementing WSIS outcomes as well as to make voluntary contributions to the special trust fund set up by ITU to support activities relating to the implementation of the WSIS outcomes. During Council 2012, the importance of the WSIS Fund in Trust to ensure efficient and effective implementation was reemphasized in Resolution 1334 (Modified 2012), in particular in the context of the WSIS+10 Review Process.

Resolution 1334 (Modified 2012) on the ITU Role in the Overall Review of the Implementation of the Outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society recognizes that ITU should play a leading managerial role in the process of the Overall Review of the Implementation of the WSIS Outcomes (WSIS+10) and encourages all Member States to contribute to the WSIS Fund in Trust of the ITU corresponding to the financial requirements of the WSIS+10 related activities.

In this context, ITU has set up the WSIS Fund in Trust offering the member states, sector members and associates the opportunity to contribute towards strengthening the implementation of the WSIS outcomes, while addressing the needs of the WSIS process and its stakeholders. I hereby would like to encourage you to contribute to the WSIS Fund in Trust. Your financial contribution will help accelerate the implementation of the WSIS related activities undertaken by ITU.
