Sustainable development goals at centre stage at WSIS last week

One key issue was linking the SDGs with WSIS’s own Action Lines, anchoring the participating countries’ and organisations’ digital activities in the wider SDG framework. For instance, in the preparation for the forum sessions, the participants were asked to describe their activities relating to the SDGs they could have an impact on, thus linking their work with tangible goals.

Overall, the deliberations at the Forum touched on various themes, ranging from development and infrastructure to human rights and cybersecurity. For anyone interested in the latest internet governance debates in these areas, the summaries of the various discussions are well worth looking over.
