ITU asking Diplomatic Council Members for Anti-Covid ICT Response

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU), part of the United Nations, is asking Diplomatic Council members to apply for the COVID-19 Response ICT Case Repository. The initiative is a part of the World Summit on Information Society (WSIS) Stocktaking ongoing efforts to promote the good use of ICTs in making social impact, and in order to provide useful, replicable and actionable information to all WSIS community and beyond, the platform is now available for collecting projects and activities on how ICTs are assisting stakeholders in their everyday life, work, and combating challenges caused by this extraordinary pandemic. Questions are:

How are you using ICTs to help your community respond COVID-19, ensuring the impactful use of the WSIS Action Lines in advancing SDGs? What projects and activities has your organization introduced during the Coronavirus disease to continue working efficiently and to create a social impact helping other stakeholders?

The aim of this repository is to help Diplomatic Council’s and other UN-related NGO’s members to continue to partner, collaborate and implement in these exceptional circumstances. Once received, the projects will be reviewed and will be featured on the WSIS Stocktaking Platform and promoted through various channels including the WSIS Flash newsletter, WSIS TalkX and social media channels.

The ongoing call for submission ICT Case Repository is planned to continue until 31 July 2020.

Please ask the Diplomatic Council’s Secretariat General for more details.
