ICT, key driver of sustainable development

The President of the United Nation (UN) General Assembly, Mr. Mogens Lykketoft, has finalised plans to convene a General Assembly High-Level Meeting on 15-16 December to review the implementation of the outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) and discuss how Information Communications Technology (ICT) could support sustainable development, reports ITRealms.

Also, ITRealms gathered that the meeting would offer Member States an opportunity to discuss bridging the digital divides, financial mechanisms, human rights in the information society, building confidence and security in the use of ICTs, internet governance, enhanced cooperation and follow-up processes.

“The rapid development of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and growth in global interconnectivity can play an increasingly important role in promoting economic and social progress in many parts of the world,” Mr. Lykketoft said.

Additionally, the meeting to be attended by high-level representatives from governments, civil society and the private sector, would include the Permanent Representative of the Republic of Latvia to the United Nations, Mr. Janis Mazeiks and Ms. Lana Zaki Nusseibeh, Permanent Representative of United Arab Emirates to the United Nations as co-facilitators of the intergovernmental negotiations of the outcome document to be adopted at the High-Level Meeting.
