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-Sectoral 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 purpose of the mapping work is to identify topics of mutual interest and the entities responsible for those topics across the three Sectors of the Union. The result of the mapping work will function as a guide to facilitate smoother information exchange within the Union in connection with the identified topics of mutual interest.
These tables were posted further to the ISCG meeting held on 1 June 2020.
- Table 1: Mapping of ITU-D SG1 and SG2 Questions to ITU-R Working Parties
- Table 2: Mapping of ITU-T Questions to ITU-R Working Parties
- Table 3: Mapping of ITU-D SG1 and SG2 Questions to ITU-T Questions
- Mapping of PP / RA & WRC / WTSA / WTDC resolutions
RAG, TSAG and TDAG are requested to regularly inform on any update to the study group Questions and Working Parties mappings.
The Inter-Sectoral 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.
