The Coalition on ICTs and Climate Change is an initiative that aims at bringing together in an informal group a selection of the key actors working on the field of ICTs and climate change.

"Climate Change is a global challenge that the world cannot afford to lose"

Dr Hamadoun I. Touré,
ITU Secretary-General
Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), such as satellites, mobile phones or the Internet, play a key role to address the major challenges related with climate change and sustainable development. ICTs are fundamental to monitor climate change, mitigate and adapt to its effects  and assist in the transition towards a green economy.

By raising awareness of the role of ICTs, ITU is promoting transformative solutions that can ensure a sustainable future.
