The Connectivity in the Least Developed Countries: Status report 2021, produced by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the United Nations Office of the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States (UN-OHRLLS), assesses the level of digital connectivity in the 46 UN-designated Least Developed Countries (LDCs). It provides practical solutions to improve digital access, as well as concrete policy recommendations to help accelerate progress towards universal and affordable connectivity.
In an effort to advance towards digital accessibility, the report identifies ways to boost Internet connectivity and usage in LDCs by raising awareness of the benefits of being online, improving digital skills for everyone, expanding connectivity to rural communities, making connectivity and hardware more affordable and emphasising the importance of working together so that everyone can truly benefit from today’s life-changing technologies.
