The WSIS+10 review process culminated in December 2015 with a renewed commitment to the WSIS vision as essential to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We are in a new phase of the WSIS process and it is a unique opportunity to focus on the interaction between technology and the various aspects of development, recognising that technology alone cannot resolve development challenges and that the information society is primarily a matter of human development.

This statement was delivered by Anriette Esterhuysen, executive director of APC, during the High-Level Policy Session at the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Forum 2016.
