This is the first edition of the success stories publication prepared within the framework of World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Stocktaking Process. It contains set of case studies to be presented at the WSIS Forum 2011 in Geneva. The WSIS Forum builds upon tradition of the annual Cluster of WSIS Related Meetings, and since 2009 is held every year following an open consultation process which brings together different stakeholders involved in the WSIS Process who shape the information society of tomorrow. Following Para 109 Tunis Agenda on the Information Society (TAIS) the WSIS Forum serves as an unique platform for annual meeting of the moderators/facilitators of action lines to coordinate the implementation at global level and to assess the progress that has been made so far. The WSIS Stocktaking Process, as requested in paragraph 120 of TAIS , serves as effective tool for assisting with the follow-up of the WSIS Process, beyond the conclusion of Tunis phase of the Summit. It has complementary function to the WSIS Forum letting the stakeholder highlight their stories accessible online and serving as reference material while discussing implementation of 11 WSIS Action Lines.
