Connect the World

Connect the World: "CONNECTING ALL COMMUNITIES BY 2015...


'No-one living in today's interconnected world can doubt the importance of ICTs in achieving development goals. It's important to remember, however, that it's not ICTs that will solve the problem of the digital divide, it's people. More than that, it's people working in partnership. So while 'Connect the World' is about harnessing the power of ICTs, it's also about harnessing the power of partnership.

I hope that between now and the next phase of the World Summit on the Information Society the launch of this initiative will inspire many other leaders of private companies, UN agencies and civil society to get together to develop new projects that will bring the enormous benefits of ICTs within easy reach of all the world's people.'
