Success Stories publication. Category 1 Action Line C1 C1. The role of governments and all stakeholders in the promotion of ICTs for development The effective participation of governments and all stakeholders is vital in developing the Information Society requiring cooperation and partnerships among all of them.
Development of national e-strategies, including the necessary human capacity building, should be encouraged by all countries bytaking into account different national circumstances. In developing and implementing national e-strategies, stakeholders should take into consideration local, regional and national needs and concerns.
To maximize the benefits of initiatives undertaken, these should include the concept of sustainability. The private sector should be engaged in concrete projects to develop the Information Society at local, regional and national levels. Identify mechanisms, at the national, regional and international levels, for the initiation and promotion of partnerships among stakeholders of the Information Society.
Explore the viability of establishing multi-stakeholder portals for indigenous peoples at the national level. Byrelevant international organizations and financial institutions should develop their own strategies for the use of ICTs for sustainable development, including sustainable production and consumption patterns and as an effective instrument to help achieve the goals expressed in the United Nations Millennium Declaration.
International organizations should publish, in their areas of competence, including on their website, reliable information submitted by relevant stakeholders on successful experiences of mainstreaming ICTs.
Encourage a series of related measures, including, among other things: Related Sustainable Development Goals: Action Line C2 C2. Information and communication infrastructure: Governments should take action, in the framework of national development policies, in order to support an enabling and competitive environment for the necessary investment in ICT infrastructure and for the development of new services.
In the context of national e-strategies, devise appropriate universal access policies and strategies, and their means of implementation, in line with the indicative targets, and develop ICT connectivity indicators. In the context of national e-strategies, provide and improve ICT connectivity for all schools, universities, health institutions, libraries, post offices, community centres, museums and other institutions accessible to the public, in line with the indicative targets.
Develop and strengthen national, regional and international broadband network infrastructure, including delivery by satellite and other systems, to help in providing the capacity to match the needs of countries and their citizens and for the delivery of new ICT-based services.
Support technical, regulatory and operational studies by the International Telecommunication Union ITU and, as appropriate, other relevant international organizations in order to: In the context of national e-strategies, address the special requirements of older people, persons with disabilities, children, especially marginalized children and other disadvantaged and vulnerable groups, including by appropriate educational administrative and legislative measures to ensure their full inclusion in the Information Society.
Encourage the design and production of ICT equipment and services so that everyone, has easy and affordable access to them including older people, persons with disabilities, children, especially marginalized children, and other disadvantaged and vulnerable groups, and promote the development of technologies, applications, and content suited to their needs, guided by the Universal Design Principle and further enhanced by the use of assistive technologies.
In order to alleviate the challenges of illiteracy, develop affordable technologies and non-text based computer interfaces to facilitate people's access to ICT.
Undertake international research and development efforts aimed at making available adequate and affordable ICT equipment for end users. Encourage the use of unused wireless capacity, including satellite, in developed countries and in particular in developing countries, to provide access in remote areas, especially in developing countries and countries with economies in transition, and to improve low-cost connectivity in developing countries.
Special concern should be given to the Least Developed Countries in their efforts in establishing telecommunication infrastructure. Optimize connectivity among major information networks by encouraging the creation and development of regional ICT backbones and Internet exchange points, to reduce interconnection costs and broaden network access.
Develop strategies for increasing affordable global connectivity, thereby facilitating improved access. Commercially negotiated Internet transit and interconnection costs should be oriented towards objective, transparent and non-discriminatory parameters, taking into account ongoing work on this subject.
Encourage and promote joint use of traditional media and new technologies. Action Line C3 C3.
Access to information and Knowledge ICTs allow people, anywhere in the world, to access information and knowledge almost instantaneously. Individuals, organizations and communities should benefit from access to knowledge and information. Develop policy guidelines for the development and promotion of public domain information as an important international instrument promoting public access to information.
Governments are encouraged to provide adequate access through various communication resources, notably the Internet, to public official information. Establishing legislation on access to information and the preservation of public data, notably in the area of the new technologies, is encouraged.
Promote research and development to facilitate accessibility of ICTs for all, including disadvantaged, marginalized and vulnerable groups. Governments, and other stakeholders, should establish sustainable multi-purpose community public access points, providing affordable or free-of-charge access for their citizens to the various communication resources, notably the Internet.
These access points should, to the extent possible, have sufficient capacity to provide assistance to users, in libraries, educational institutions, public administrations, post offices or other public places, with special emphasis on rural and under-served areas, while respecting intellectual property rights IPRs and encouraging the use of information and sharing of knowledge.
Encourage research and promote awareness among all stakeholders of the possibilities offered by different software models, and the means of their creation, including proprietary, open-source and free software, in order to increase competition, freedom of choice and affordability, and to enable all stakeholders to evaluate which solution best meets their requirements.
Governments should actively promote the use of ICTs as a fundamental working tool by their citizens and local authorities.A case study is a story about something unique, special, or interesting—stories can be Plan • Identify stakeholders who will be involved.
