The Inter-Sector Coordination Group (ISCG) on issues of mutual interest, which is composed by representatives of all three advisory groups, works to identify subjects common to the three Sectors and mechanisms to enhance cooperation and collaboration in all Sectors on matters of mutual interest, in order to avoid duplication of effort and optimize the use of resources of the Union. It should consider current and new activities and their distribution among ITU-R, ITU-T and ITU-D for approval by the ITU Member States in accordance with the procedures for approval of new and revised Questions. It will also consider the reports by the three Directors and the Inter-Sector Task Force (ISC-TF) on options for improving cooperation at the secretariat level to ensure that close coordination is maximized.
It was originally set up by WTDC-14 through its Resolution 59, which was subsequently revised by WTDC-17. Its Terms of Reference are approved by the three advisory groups.
The currently displayed tables were posted on 15 April, further to the ISCG meeting held on 4 April 2019.
- Mapping of ITU-D Study Group 1/Study Group 2 Questions
- Mapping of ITU-D / ITU-T study group Questions
- Mapping of ITU-D study group Questions / ITU-R Working Parties
- Mapping of PP / RA & WRC / WTSA / WTDC resolutions
RAG, TSAG and TDAG are requested to regularly update the study group Question and Working Party mappings.
The Inter-Sector Coordination Task Force (ISC-TF) is requested to review these mapping tables with a view to eliminating possible overlaps of activities.
Attention is also drawn to the mapping table of resolutions of PP, RA & WRC, WTSA and WTDC. Each Sector is invited to review, provide comments and make use of this table with a view to streamlining resolutions.
