The Regulatory Wheel of Fire: Collaborative Regulation to Leverage ICTs for SDGs

Connecting the next billion is a prospect clearly in view. ICTs can be leveraged for e-banking and e-health – making a real difference to people’s lives and welcoming millions into the digital economy. 

This session will address how ICT/telecommunciations regulation is coming of age. It will illustrate the seismic shift moving countries through Generations 1, 2, 3 and 4 of Regulation. Generation 5 is on the near horizon and it rewrites the rules: it’s open, collaborative, flexible and consensus-based. Where are coutnries in the regulatory generation process? What does this mean?

Evidence-based decisison making is key to regulation.  ITU offers global, authoritative, data-rich analysis and commentary on the interplay between ICT regulation and ICT markets.
