WSIS Fund in Trust

Call for Contributions 2023

Houlin Zhao, ITU Secretary-GeneralThe WSIS Trust Fund was established in ​2​​011 with the adoption of Plenipotentiary Conference Resolution 140. Council Resolution 1332 as modified by ITU Council in May 2016 tak​es i​nto account the outc​omes of the United Nations General Assembly Overall Review of the Implementation of WSIS Outcomes and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a​nd resolves to maintain the fund to support ITU activities to facilitate the implementation of WSIS outcom​es, calls for partnerships and strategic alliances, and invites the ITU Membership to make voluntary contributions to the fund.

Since its creation, inform​ation on the​ WSIS Trust Fund and stakeholder contributions has been reflected here—the dedicated website of the WSIS Fund in Trust. l would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who hav​e contributed towards the Trust Fund to date for their dedication and commitment towards WSIS implementation, particularly towards the annual WSIS Forum events (2009-2022). Moving towards 2025, and following the multi-stakeholder approach, the WSIS Forum will continue to build upon the outcomes of the WSIS+10 Review and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The WSIS Forum 2023 is scheduled to be held from 13 to 17 March 2023 at the ITU Headquarters premises in Geneva, with the support of remote participation. I appreciate the trust and unwavering support from all stakeholders, especially the WSIS Trust Fund contributors, in supporting the adaption of the WSIS Forum to the new situation and innovative virtual format. The WSIS Forum 2022 final week welcomed more than 1,000 physical participants, with more than 30,000 remote participants since 15 March 2022. The outcome reports and highlights of the WSIS Forum 2022 can be found here.

I would, therefore, like to encourage all ITU membership and other interested stakeholders to contribute to the WSIS Fund in Trust for the year 2023, and to invite all stakeholders to partner with the WSIS Forum 2023. You will find below the WSIS Forum 2023 Partnership Packages.
