ITUWTDC 2022 – Connecting the unconnected to achieve sustainable development
The International Telecommunication Union, through its Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT), organizes a World Telecommunication Development Conference (WTDC) every four years in the period between two Plenipotentiary Conferences to consider topics, projects and programmes relevant to telecommunication development.
WTDCs set the strategies and objectives for the development of telecommunication/ICT, providing future direction and guidance to the ITU Telecommunication Development Sector (ITU-D).
The ITU World Telecommunication Development Conference WTDC will be hosted by the Government of Ethiopia.
The Road to Addis is building momentum towards WTDC, strengthens partnerships and engagement and helps to shape with key stakeholders the WTDC agenda. The events focus on specific issues relevant to digital development and feature the participation of key stakeholders.
