This report details a strategy to implement the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Smart Sustainable Development Model (SSDM) Initiative. The SSDM was developed in 2012 by the ITU Development Telecommunication Bureau (BDT) to encourage dual-use of ICT for development (ICT4D) and ICT for disaster management (ICT4DM). An SSDM approach could dramatically benefit both sectors in terms of efficiency, cost-effectiveness and sustainability. Moreover, making full use of a combined and dual-use approach has real prospects of saving lives and communities. How to bring this about and deliver the SSDM Initiative is the main objective of this report.

Foreword

If we believe that Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are serving as the most important driving force behind countries’ economic and social integration into the wider global community, as I stated in the first report on the Smart Sustainable Development Model (SSDM) Initiative, then we must also believe that we have to implement these possibilities.
