WSIS Official Opening Segment


WSIS Official Opening Segment

The WSIS Forum provides a multistakeholder platform to foster global cooperation and provide meaningful connections to information society by ensuring Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) as a key enabler for sustainable development. Under the theme of WSIS Forum 2021 this year: ICTs for Inclusive, Resilient and Sustainable Societies and Economies (WSIS Action Lines for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals), the WSIS Forum continues to highlight the implementation of the WSIS Action Lines to help accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Forum also provides an opportunity for stakeholders to exchange and share best practices in the use of technology for good, in particular in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The WSIS process is more relevant than ever before as it is aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which is so dependent on ICTs for its implementation.

The COVID-19 pandemic has illustrated the power and promise of ICTs and has strengthened collaboration and coordination which has been very evident in the WSIS process with active participation across all regions and all stakeholders.

The opening segment will inaugurate the final week of the WSIS Forum 2021 and will consist of opening statements from the WSIS Forum 2021 host, co-organizers, UN partners, and sponsors that are engaged in the WSIS process.
