As Chair of the 18th session of the Commission, I look forward to working with all stakeholders in this review and look forward to receiving your contribution.

In its resolution E/2013/9, the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) requested the Commission on Science and Technology for Development (CSTD) to collect inputs from all facilitators and stakeholders concerning progress made in the implementation of WSIS outcomes. The ECOSOC also requested the Commission to submit, after its eighteenth session, the results of its 10-year review of progress made in the implementation of the outcomes of the World Summit, through the Council, to the General Assembly as it makes an overall review of the implementation of the outcomes of the World Summit in 2015.
Following the request by the ECOSOC, the CSTD invites all stakeholders to share their experiences, views and priorities on progress made in the implementation of WSIS outcomes at regional and international levels by submitting contributions through the questionnaire below or by email to the CSTD Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org, by 31 August 2014. All contributions will be made available on this website in their original language for consideration by the Commission unless contributors specifically request that their contributions should not be published. Stakeholders are also invited to submit any reports, publications or other documents which they consider provide useful evidence for the review.
