Bridging the Standardization Gap (BSG)

ITU's commitment to Bridging the Standardization Gap 

Bridging the Standardization Gap (BSG) is a fundamental part of ITU's mission to connect the world. BSG is also one of the 5 strategic objectives of ITU’s standardization sector (ITU-T). The overarching goal of the BSG programme is to address the disparities in the ability of developing c​​ountries, relative to developed ones, to access, implement and influence ITU's international standards. In this context, the BSG programme aims to facilitate the efficient participation of developing countries in ITU's standards-making process, to disseminate information about existing standards, and to assist developing countries in the implementation of standards.
