 SECOND PHASE, TUNIS : FUNDING OF WSIS
 

The total cost of organizing the core preparatory process and the Summit of the Tunis Phase is estimated to be about CHF 15 million, not including elements of the process supported by the host country, Tunisia. The WSIS-2005 Fundraising Campaign has set a goal of raising at least CHF 5 million in financial contributions with the expectation that the remainder can be supported through in-kind contributions from various partners.
