In the period 2014-2016, WSIS Stocktaking Reports have reviewed 162 ICT-related projects and activities carried out by international organizations, governments, the private sector, civil society and other stakeholders in the Americas Region, with those in 2016 highlighting the efforts deployed by stakeholders involved in implementation of the SDGs. WSIS Stocktaking reports are based on the multistakeholder approach, including input from stakeholders from all over the world responding to ITU’s official call for stocktaking updates and new entries. The inputs from WSIS action line facilitators and co-facilitators also contribute to the reports.



The role of public governance authorities and all stakeholders in the promotion of ICTs for development

In Argentina, a new project entitled Fostering integration of Argentine academia in the activities of ITU was created by ENACOM (Ente Nacional de Comunicaciones). The goal of this project is to build human capacity with a high level of specialization in telecommunications and ICT. To this end, all national universities and other associated research institutions (including those focusing on electronic engineering, industrial engineering, IT, medicine, law and economics) with an interest in the work of ITU were invited to participate.
