The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Stocktaking Process was launched in October 2004. Its aim is to provide a register of activities carried out by governments, international organizations, the business sector, civil society and other entities in order to share knowledge and successful experiences. In this context, ECOSOC Resolution 2010/2 on “Assessment of the progress made in the implementation and follow-up to the outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society” encourages all WSIS stakeholders to continue to contribute information to the WSIS Stocktaking database.
Therefore, governments, international organizations, civil society organizations and the private sector are invited to submit any new entries relevant to the time period 2010-2012 through a questionnaire or online at www.wsis.org/stocktaking. The questionnaire includes a description of the activities an organization is engaged with.
To access the questionnaire, click here. The deadline for submissions is 15 January 2012 through the online WSIS Stocktaking Platform.
Information submitted to the public database will be reflected in the WSIS Stocktaking Report 2012 which will be officially launched during the WSIS Forum 2012 and submitted to the 15th Session of the Commission on Science and Technology for Development (CSTD).
