Press Release: World Summit on the Information Society 10-year review sets vision for post-2015 development agenda

WSIS+10 Outcome provides fresh priorities for global ICT ecosystem

Geneva, 12 June 2014 – More than 1600 participants including around 100 Government Ministers and leaders from international organizations, from business, civil society and academia are meeting in Geneva this week to review progress on the outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) over the last ten years and to set priorities for the post-2015 development agenda.

With the rapid development of information and communication technologies (ICT) and the mainstreaming of ICTs into everyday life, the link between these technologies and human development has become increasingly important. It has therefore become necessary to consider the development of an inclusive information society in the broader context of the post-2015 development agenda, and this has been outlined in the WSIS+10 Vision for WSIS Beyond 2015 document, which will be endorsed today.
