The principal role of the WSIS Stocktaking exercise is to leverage the activities of stakeholders working on the implementation of WSIS outcomes and share knowledge and experience of projects by replicating successful models designed to achieve SDGs. The WSIS Stocktaking process was initiated in October 2004 during the Tunis phase of WSIS, and in the years since then it has come to comprise the database of: exchanges of information on projects, sharing of best practices of certain regions, initiatives related to the implementation of the 11 WSIS action lines, linkage between the 11 action lines and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - a linkage that becomes more and more important over the years.



Executive Summary

More than 600 ICT-related projects from around the world were submitted for the WSIS Stocktaking Report 2017 by the WSIS Stakeholder community. The ninth edition of the WSIS Stocktaking set a new record of global multistakeholder engagement in implementation of WSIS Action Lines for SDGs. The Report will be presented during the WSIS Forum 2017, 12-16 June 2017 in Geneva, Switzerland. At the same occasion, an interactive session will be dedicated to presentation of the results of this year’s WSIS Stocktaking and to listen to the voices of the WSIS stakeholders community on how to improve the process in the future.
