Written Submission to the United Nations Group on the Information Society (UNGIS) Open Consultations on Financial Mechanisms for Meeting the Challenges of ICT for Development, to be held 8-9 October 2009, at Palexpo, Geneva, Switzerland
The Tunis Agenda for the Information Society recognized that the issue of Financial Mechanisms for Meeting the Challenges of ICT for Development was a significant issue for developing countries. APC was represented on the Task Force on Financial Mechanisms (TFFM) whose report provided the basis for discussion. We feel it is a good time to review progress on financing ICTD since 2005 and welcome the initiative of the UNGIS to hold open consultations on the matter. We would also like to thank UNGIS for the opportunity to make a written submission.
