Access technology for broadband telecommunications including IMT, for developing countries
ITU-D Study Groups
In support of the knowledge sharing and capacity building agenda of the Telecommunication Development Bureau, ITU-D Study Groups support countries in achieving their development goals. By acting as a catalyst by creating, sharing and applying knowledge in ICTs to poverty reduction and economic and social development, ITU-D Study Groups contribute to stimulating the conditions for Member States to utilize knowledge for better achieving their development goals.
Outputs agreed on in the ITU-D Study Groups and related reference material are used as input for the implementation of policies, strategies, projects and special initiatives in the 193 ITU Member States. These activities also serve to strengthen the shared knowledge base of the membership.
Information Exchange & Knowledge Sharing Hub
Sharing of topics of common interest is carried out through face-to-face meetings, e-Forum and remote participation in an atmosphere that encourages open debate and exchange of information.
Reports, Guidelines, Best Practices and Recommendations are developed based on input received for review by members of the Groups. Information is gathered through surveys, contributions and case studies and is made available for easy access by the membership using content management and web publication tools.
Study Group 2
Study Group 2 was entrusted by WTDC-10 with the study of nine Questions in the areas of information and communication infrastructure and technology development, emergency telecommunications and climate-change adaptation. The work focused on studying methods and approaches that are the most suitable and successful for service provision in planning, developing, implementing, operating, maintaining and sustaining telecommunication services which optimize their value to users. This work included specific emphasis on broadband networks, mobile radiocommunication and telecommunications/ICTs for rural and remote areas, the needs of developing countries in spectrum management, the use of ICTs in mitigating the impact of climate change on developing countries, telecommunications/ICTs for natural disaster mitigation and relief, conformance and interoperability testing and e-applications, with particular focus and emphasis on applications supported by telecommunications/ICTs. The work also looked at the implementation of information and communication technology, taking into account the results of the studies carried out by ITU-T and ITU-R, and the priorities of developing countries.
Study Group 2, together with ITU-R Study Group 1, also deals with Resolution 9 (Rev. WTDC-10) on the “Participation of countries, particularly developing countries, in spectrum management”.
