ITU WSIS Action Line Roadmaps for C2, C5 and C6 are detailed plans to guide progress towards achieving the WSIS Implementation goals. They provide a broad vision and detailed overview of the activities planned within the mandate of the Union also showing clear linkages with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In line with its mandate and the WSIS outcome documents, the ITU continues to play a key role in the WSIS implementation and follow-up process in particular, as the WSIS Action Lines Sole Facilitator for AL C2 (Information and Communication Infrastructure), AL C5 (Building Confidence and Security in the Use of ICTs), and AL C6 (Enabling Environment).
With the aim of strengthening the implementation mechanism, ITU Council 2009 agreed on the framework for roadmaps of ITU’s activities in its role as the sole facilitator for the above mentioned WSIS action lines in the implementation of WSIS up to 2015. ITU Council 2016 further highlighted the importance of continuing this exercise also in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) till 2025. The roadmaps have been updated in accordance to the outcomes of the World Telecommunication Development Conference (WTDC-17).
