ITU Programme at the ”iseeT@COP15” Kiosk

The 2009 exhibition of the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) focused on how information and communication technologies (ICTs) are helping to increase awareness and to support concrete action on climate change in both developing and developed countries.

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) contributed a special programme of daily "business talks" by leaders in the ICT sector from both developing and developed countries which were held every day from 13.00 to 14.00 hours from 7 to 18 December 2009.
