World Telecommunication/ICT Development Report 2010
Monitoring the WSIS targets
A mid-term review


The 9th edition of the ITU World Telecommunication/ICT Development Report (WTDR 2010) focuses on Monitoring the WSIS Targets. The year 2010 marks the midpoint between the 2005 Tunis phase of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) and 2015, the deadline for achieving the ten targets that governments agreed upon at the WSIS. The Report is a mid-term review, and provides policy makers with a comprehensive assessment of what has been achieved so far, and what remains to be done. 

The Report has been prepared specifically for the WSIS Forum 2010 and the ITU World Telecommunication Development Conference (WTDC-10), both held in May 2010.

The Report reviews the 10 targets, proposes concrete indicators to monitor them and makes recommendations on policies and measures to help achieve them:  

The Report reflects a joint effort among several international organisations, led by ITU and including contributions from UNESCO, WHO and UNDESA, as well as from representatives of civil society.

Based on the indicators proposed by the report, the Partnership on Measuring ICT for Development launched the Task Group on Measuring the WSIS targets, which is expected to further enhance and refine the indicators and develop a monitoring framework that will help countries in tracking the WSIS targets.
