In the period 2014-2016, WSIS Stocktaking Reports have reviewed 248 ICT-related projects and activities carried out by international organizations, governments, the private sector, civil society and other stakeholders in the Arab 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.




In Kuwait, the Kuwait Red Crescent Society Website (KRCS) project was initiated primarily in order to make the KRCS mission more accessible to donors and people seeking assistance in disaster-affected places (SDGs 1, 10, 11, and 17). The project has enabled KRCS to accept online donations. The main objective of the project is to provide clear and easily accessible information on KRCS services and their institutional aspects for donors, volunteers and people seeking relief. To achieve all the intended goals, KRCS and its project partners had to adhere to a demanding schedule, and the entire project was initiated and completed in less than ten months. During the early phase of developing the project execution plan, the entire project was divided up into smaller and more manageable goals. This approach enabled the team to implement the project in a very short time.
