5th Meeting - Green ICTs for Sustainable Development
8 November 2012, from 16.30 to 18h. Baku, Azerbaijan
Conference Room 6

Today’s world faces major challenges crucial for human advancement.  

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can play a critical role in stimulating economic activities, advancing social development goals and promoting sustainable development.  

With innovations such as smart grids, smart metering, smart billing and electro-mobility, ICTs have brought new ways of managing energy distribution, improving efficiency and savings in all areas of production and consumption, where energy savings are particularly envisaged for the ICT infrastructure.  

Tools as mobile communications, videoconferencing, e-government and dematerialization have enabled new ways of working, learning and operating a business, transforming our society.

Revolutionizing business models and behavior, making management of energy distribution more efficient, enabling new ways of working, learning, and providing healthcare, helping countries to mitigate climate change and adapt to its effects and reduce disaster risk, ICTs can be an opportunity for a sustainable and inclusive future.  

This session will present ICT Sector’s major achievements and efforts in improving its role as enabler for sustainable change, providing an overview on how green ICTs can help achieve the long-term balance between human advancement and planet’s preservation.
