The joint ITU/ATU Regional Preparatory Meeting for WTDC for Africa (RPM-AFR) took place virtually from 29 to 30 March 2021.
In line with Resolution 31 (Rev. Hyderabad, 2010), the Regional Preparatory Meetings (RPMs) aim at engaging the membership in the preparations of the World Telecommunication Development Conference (WTDC) in order to achieve regional coordination before the conference itself. They also seek to identify issues at the regional level that need to be addressed to foster the development of telecommunications and ICTs, taking into account the most pressing needs faced by the Member States and Sector Members of the region.
Outcomes of RPMs will be consolidated at the inter-regional coordination meeting and discussed at TDAG 2021. The outcomes of TDAG will be submitted to WTDC as draft documents for consideration.
