Focus Group on ICTs and Climate Change (FG ICT&CC)
Introduction Contact:

ITU and Climate ChangeThe Focus Group on ICTs and Climate Change was established by TSAG in July 2008 and successfully completed its work in April 2009.

Scope and Objectives

The scope of the Focus Group was to identify from the standardization viewpoint, within the competences of ITU-T, the impact of ICTs on Climate Change, in particular the reduction of ICT’s own emissions over their entire lifecycle (direct impact), the mitigation that follows through the adoption of ICTs in other relevant sectors (indirect impact), and facilitating the monitoring of relevant climate parameters.

Terms of Reference of the FG on ICTs and Climate Change

The FG analyzed and identified gaps in the areas of definitions, general principles, methodology and appropriate tools to characterize the impact of ICTs on Climate Change and support the development of appropriate international standards.

Report to TSAG / Deliverables
The following documents were produced by the FG and reported to TSAG at its 28-30 April 2009 meeting: This work will continue in the relevant study groups. TSAG designated SG-5 as the lead SG on Environment and Climate Change and established the Joint Coordination Activity on ICTs and climate change (JCA-ICT&CC) to coordinate work amongst the ITU-T Study Groups, and to liaise with the ITU-R and ITU-D Sectors.
