Report on the WSIS Stocktaking 2013

This report provides crucial outcomes, in the form of the Forum 2013 Outcome Document, a compilation of recommendations from all sessions with special focus on recommendations for WSIS+10 and the 2013 edition of the publication Identifying Emerging Trends and a WSIS Beyond 2015. During WSIS Forum 2013 the UNGIS members will issue a joint declaration highlighting how the link between the potential of ICTs as key enablers ofdevelopment, and as critical components of innovative development solutions, is full recognised in the Post 2015 Development Agenda, and that the Post-2015 Development Agenda reflects lessons learned during the past decade in the implementation of the WSIS outcomes.The WSIS Forum has evolved as the mechanism to identify emerging trends in the ICT ecosystem in a multistakeholder format, with expert inputs from UN Agency Focal Points; it plays a strategic role within the framework of the WSIS+10 Overall Review and beyond 2015 as the only international multistakeholder platform to get multistakeholder consensus on WSIS+10 Overall Review. In the upcoming WSIS Forum 2013, several WSIS+10 Visioning tracks have been integrated in the agenda.

Hide / Show Abstract

United Nations General Assembly Resolution 56/183 (21 December 2001) endorsed the holding of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in two phases. The first phase took place in Geneva, from 10 to 12 December 2003, and the second phase took place in Tunis, from 16 to 18 November 2005. The objective of the first phase was to develop and foster a clear statement of political will and take concrete steps to establish the foundations for an Information Society for all, reflecting all the different interests at stake. The objective of the second phase was to put the Geneva Plan of Action into motion, as well as to find solutions and reach agreements in the fields of Internet governance, financing mechanisms and follow-up and implementation of the Geneva and Tunis documents.
