GENEVA, 24 February 2014 (APCNews)

From 24 – 28 February various members of the APC community will be attending the third meeting of the Working Group on Enhanced Cooperation (WGEC) of the Commission on Science and Technology for Development (CSTD). This is a process established by the UN General Assembly to review the Tunis Agenda, one of the main outcomes of the more than decade-long World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) process, especially its provisions on enhanced cooperation. The final aim is to submit recommendations to the CSTD annual session in 2014.

Last year, WGEC distributed a survey and it’s based its recommendations on its analysis. You can see APC’s submission here:
