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.

Ethical dimension of the information society

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), as the lead facilitator for Action Line C10: Ethical dimensions of the information society, is working in a range of areas. As part of its efforts to stimulate the global debate on the ethical dimensions of the information society and support international cooperation, UNESCO has initiated a reflection process for its Member States aimed at enlarging understanding, building consensus, identifying key areas of concern and pinpointing capacity gaps. The outcome of this process was a document on UNESCO and the ethical dimensions of the information society.
