Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and ICTs

Mid-Term Review of the Samoa Pathway

This document reviews progress in access to affordable and modern digital technologies since the 2014 Samoa conference on SIDS. It was prepared as an input document to the September 2019 high-level meeting to review progress made in addressing the priorities of SIDS through implementation of the SIDS Accelerated Modalities of Action (SAMOA) Pathway. It provides examples to demonstrate progress made, showing how SIDS are using ICTs to help drive sustainable development, and includes a framework for tracking progress towards a universal and affordable Internet.
