In follow up to the outcomes of the UN General Assembly Overall Review of the Implementation of WSIS Outcomes (Res. A/70/125) and with the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (Res. A/70/1), the WSIS Forum is constantly evolving and strengthening the alignment between the WSIS Action Lines and the Sustainable Development Goals.
As the WSIS Forum serves as a key forum for discussing the role of ICTs as a facilitator in implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and remain as a global mechanism for follow-up and review of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (UNGA Resolution A/70/1).
As the WSIS process continues to be a platform for sharing and caring, the action line facilitation meeting for AL C-7 e-Environment will discuss contribution that ICTs make to achieve a sustainable environment and sustainable development goals. While we are looking for solutions and benefits there are new elements, challenges and considerations that should be incorporated into WSIS forum. The facilitation meeting for Action Line C7, e-environment will be a roundtable discussion among key stakeholders involved in the implementation of this action line along with experts from the sustainability community.
