The WSIS Stocktaking Process is a follow-up to WSIS that was initiated in 2004. Its purpose is to provide a register of activities carried out by governments, international organizations, the business sector, civil society and other entities, in order to highlight the progress made since that landmark event. Following § 120 of TAIS, ITU has been maintaining the WSIS Stocktaking database as a publicly accessible system providing information on ICT-related initiatives and projects with reference to the 11 WSIS Action Lines.The 2010 Edition of the WSIS Stocktaking Report is a continuation of the WSIS Stocktaking Report series and it is based on data contributed by stakeholders. The year 2010 is the half-way point between the successful conclusion of the Summit in Tunis and 2015, the date that the international community has committed to deliver the WSIS targets. For that reason, 2010 is a significant time to evaluate the progress achieved so far and to examine and improve upon existing cooperation and partnerships among stakeholders in order to achieve the WSIS goals and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
