International case study

The WSIS Forum is the key forum for discussing the role of ICTs as a means of implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. In the SDGs domain it is a must to adequately take into account ICTs applied to safety and security in a broad sense, they are relevant part of SDGs as outlined many times both within the UNGA Overall WSIS Review and the UNDP 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development SDGs.”

Safety and security are integral part of human rights; we must provide all the efforts in order to guarantee such rights (as stated in art 3, 22, 25 - The Universal Declaration of Human Rights).

Nowadays the demand for "safety & security" in all its forms has increased, we outline the role of ICTs in risks assessment and management. They are playing key roles in a number of “risky” scenarios from health and children abuse to homeland security and law enforcement, crimes, trafficking (humans, drugs, weapons, artefacts, etc.), natural and human disasters recovery and management, and even safety on working places and mobility.

WSIS may play a key role in this sector becoming the reference point for all those working in these sectors and those who may take advantage from their outcomes.

We must promote an interdisciplinary approach and a “culture” of safety & security, they are the basis in order to obtain good results in this area; foster the exchange of experiences and best practices among countries and promote research thanks to the WSIS.

On the occasion of previous editions of the WSIS Forum (e.g. 2014, 2015, 2016) some eminent speakers underlined the key-role played by ICTs on the occasion of natural disasters and other critical events, they said that cyber technologies have fuelled the hope of people affected by the natural disaster. The availability of low price high performance devices and the proactive activity of clever developers have boosted the production of a number of smart solutions spread in different countries all-over the world. Due to the actual “silos” segmenting these sectors it is quite difficult to have a comprehensive vision on these resources and success stories, there is a need for a holistic approach and best practice sharing, this is the main aim of the workshop.
