How can connectivity affect change?

Connectivity is a crucial element for progress in all aspects of sustainable development. Each year, the Commission focuses in on select relevant global issues affected by access or lack of access to broadband. These topics are assessed through multistakeholder Working Groups discussion and research, and culminate in a series of policy recommendations for affecting change. Below is a snapshot of our current Working Groups.
