Summary

Ten years ago, at the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), the international community agreed a common vision to build a “people-centred, inclusive and development-oriented information society”, and established ten targets, relating for the most part to ICT connectivity and access, that were intended to measure progress towards that vision (ITU, 2005b). The targets were intended to complement the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), agreed by the United Nations in 2000, by helping to guide the contribution that ICTs could make to achieving those goals by their target date in 2015.
