At the 2014 Plenipotentiary Conference (PP-14), ITU Member States adopted Resolution 200 (Busan, 2014): “Connect 2020 Agenda for global telecommunication/ICT development”, establishing a set of global targets to be achieved by the whole Union by 2020 in the areas of growth, inclusiveness, sustainability, and innovation and partnerships in the telecommunication/ICT sector. The four goals of the Connect 2020 Agenda include 17 targets, designed to provide an indication of progress towards the achievement of the goals up to 2020.
The ITU strategic framework and Connect 2020 Agenda contribute/are linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Targets, and to the WSIS Action Lines.
ITU's work is linked to the SDGs in several ways:
- Main key focus: SDG 9, target 9c, Universal and affordable access for all
- Key focus: SDGs 4, 5 ans 17.
- ICTs as enablers of all 17 SDGs.
