Connect2Recover initiative: A methodology for identifying connectivity gaps and strengthening resilience in the new normal
In this issue
The Connect2Recover initiative supports countries in their efforts to identify gaps and bottlenecks for the utilization of broadband networks and digital technologies to respond to and mitigate the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes recovery following the pandemic, readiness for the “new normal”, and preparedness for any future pandemics.
This report includes several key findings regarding data sources, resilience, and policy and regulations. It also details key elements common to successful national broadband plans, which are instrumental to helping close the digital divide, collect trustworthy sources of data to carry out gap analysis, increase network redundancy and resiliency, and prepare to move quickly should future disasters occur. Furthermore, it can be applied to other ITU “build back better” initiatives such as those in support of education, health care, and job creation.
