Representatives of the academic environment will be included in the official delegations to the major conferences organized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), provides revised Resolution 169 approved at the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference (PP-22) taking place these days in Bucharest, according to Agerpres.

According to the document, ITU member states are invited to consider including members of academia in official delegations to major ITU conferences. Also, member states are invited to inform their academia of the resolution, and to encourage and support them to participate in ITU activities.

Also, new points were added to ITU Resolution 135, which concerns technical assistance and advice to developing countries on information and communication technologies (ICTs). The additions note the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, mention the UN Secretary-General’s plan for achieving universal connectivity by 2030, and point to an increasing role for ITU regional and area offices.

Under the revised text, PP-22 also agreed that ITU’s Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT) shall facilitate the implementation of projects under the regional initiatives by considering both cash and/or in-kind contributions from member states.

Resolution 184 was also amended to designate other mechanisms for sharing information to enable indigenous peoples to access relevant information on ITU fellowships. The revision also encompasses taking equitable geographical distribution into account when providing ITU fellowships to indigenous peoples.
