We reaffirm our common desire and commitment to the WSIS vision to build a people-centred, inclusive and development-oriented Information Society, where everyone can create, access, utilize and share information and knowledge, enabling individuals, communities and peoples to achieve their full potential in promoting their sustainable development and improving their quality of life, premised on the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, including sovereign
equality, territorial integrity, rule of law, and non-interference in internal affairs of other states,
and respecting fully and upholding the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. [Suggested for Closure]

10 Leave a comment on paragraph 10 0 76. We further reaffirm our commitment to the Geneva Declaration of Principles, the Geneva Plan of Action and its Action Lines, the Tunis Commitment and the Tunis Agenda for the Information Society, and we recognize the need for governments, the private sector, civil society, international
organizations and all other relevant stakeholders to continue to work together to implement the WSIS vision beyond 2015
. [Suggested for Closure]

11 Leave a comment on paragraph 11 0 87. We moreover reaffirm the value and principles of multi-stakeholder cooperation and engagement that have characterized the WSIS process since its inception, recognising that effective participation, partnership and cooperation of governments, the private sector, civil society, international organizations, the technical and academic communities, and all other relevant stakeholders, in within
their respective roles and responsibilities, especially with balanced representation from developing countries, has been and continues to be vital in developing the Information Society. [Suggested for Closure]

12 Leave a comment on paragraph 12 0 98. We welcome the remarkable evolution and diffusion of ICTs, unforeseen 10 years ago and underpinned by the contributions of all stakeholders
both public and private sectors, which have seen penetration into almost all corners of the globe, restructured created new opportunities for social interaction and, enabled new business models, and contributed to
economic growth and development in all other sectors.

13 Leave a comment on paragraph 13 0 9 10. We recognize that increased ICT connectivity, innovation, and access have played a critical role in enabling progress on the Millennium Development Goals, and we call for close alignment between the WSIS process and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, highlighting ICT’s cross-cutting contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and poverty eradication, and noting that access to ICTs has also become a development indicator and aspiration in and of itself.

14 Leave a comment on paragraph 14 0 10 11. We note express concern, however, that there are still critical significant digital divides, such as between and within countries and between women and men, which need to be addressed through, among other actions, strengthened enabling policy environments and international cooperation to improve affordability, access, education, capacity-building, multilingualism, cultural preservation, investment
and appropriate financing. Further, we acknowledge that a gender divide exists as part of the digital divides, and encourage all stakeholders to ensure the full participation of women in the information society and women’s access to the new technologies, especially ICTs for development. [Suggested for Closure]

15 Leave a comment on paragraph 15 0 1211. We acknowledge that particular attention should be paid to address the unique ICT challenges facing developing countries, including African countries, least developed countries, landlocked developing countries, small island developing states, middle-income countries, countries and territories under [foreign] occupation, and countries affected by conflict or natural disasters, and middle-income countries. Particular attention should also be paid to address the specific ICT challenges facing children, youth, persons with disabilities, older persons, women, indigenous peoples, refuges and internally displaced people, migrants and
remote and rural communities.

16 Leave a comment on paragraph 16 0 12 13. We [We recognize that the Internet is a global resource that must be managed in an open and inclusive manner, which serves the public interest. We further reaffirm that the international management of the Internet should be multilateral, transparent and democratic, with the full involvement of governments, private sector, civil society, international organizations, the technical and academic communities, international organizations and all other relevant stakeholders.]

17 Leave a comment on paragraph 17 0 14 13. We further recognize that to achieve the WSIS vision, the treatment and use of ICTs must fully reflect that the same rights that people have offline apply must also be protected online, and that building. Building confidence and security in ICT use must should also be a priority, especially given growing abuse of ICTs for harmful activities from harassment to crime to terrorism.

18 Leave a comment on paragraph 18 0 1. ICT for Development

19 Leave a comment on paragraph 19 0 14 15. We commit to harnessing the potential of ICTs to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other internationally-agreed internationally agreed development goals, noting that ICTs can accelerate progress across all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in addition to its specific reference in
SDGs 4b (education and scholarships), 5b (women’s empowerment), 9c (infrastructure and access), and 17.8 (technology bank and capacity-building)
. We accordingly call on all governments, the private sector, civil society, international organizations, the technical and academic communities, and all other relevant stakeholders to integrate ICTs in their implementation approaches to the SDGs, and for UN request United Nations entities facilitating the WSIS Action Lines to contextualize review their reporting and work within plans to support implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

20 Leave a comment on paragraph 20 0 15 16. We recognize with satisfaction that the last decade’s considerable increases in connectivity, use, creation, and innovation have created new tools to drive poverty eradication and economic, social, and environmental betterment and poverty eradication. Fixed For example, fixed and wireless broadband, mobile Internet, smartphones and tablets, cloud computing, social media and big data were only in
their early stages in the Tunis Agenda, and are now understood to be foundational contributors to sustainable development. [Suggested for Closure]

21 Leave a comment on paragraph 21 0 17 16. We reaffirm that the spread and use of ICTs must continue to be a core focus and outcome of the WSIS process. We are highly encouraged that the number of mobile phone subscriptions is estimated to have risen from 2.2 billion in 2005 to 7.1 billion in 2015, and that by the end of 2015, 3.2 billion people are expected to be online, over 40 43 per cent of the total world population and of which 2 billion are from developing countries. We also note that fixed broadband subscriptions have reached a penetration rate of almost 10 per cent, as compared to 3.4 per cent in 2005, and that mobile broadband remains the fastest growing market segment, with continuous double-digit growth rates and an estimated global penetration rate of 32 per cent, or four times the penetration rate recorded just five years earlier.

22 Leave a comment on paragraph 22 0 17 18. We note that the digital economy is an important and growing part of the global economy, and that ICT connectivity is correlated with increases in GDP. ICTs have created a new generation of businesses, innovators, and jobs, and, while altering and making obsolete others, have also generally increased the efficiency, market access, and ingenuity of all sectors. We recognize the critical importance of expanding the participation of all countries, particularly developing countries, in the digital economy. [Suggested for Closure]

23 Leave a comment on paragraph 23 0 19 18. We also recognize that ICTs are contributing to higher levels of social benefit and inclusion, providing new channels among citizens, businesses and governments to share and augment knowledge, as well as participate in decisions that affect their lives and work. As envisioned by the WSIS Action Lines, we have seen ICT-enabled breakthroughs in e-government government, e-business business, e-education education, e-health health, eemployment employment, e-agriculture
agriculture and e-science science, among others, allowing greater numbers of people access to services and data that might previously have been out-of-reach or unaffordable. We have also seen ICTs become central to disaster and humanitarian response. At the same time, we recognize that ICTs are fundamentally altering the way individuals and communities interact, consume, and
spend their time, with new and unforeseen health and social consequences, many of which are positive, and some of which raise concerns.

24 Leave a comment on paragraph 24 0 19 20. We recognize that ICTs have become central to disaster and humanitarian response and further reaffirm its role to enhance and develop multi-hazard early warning systems, preparedness, response, recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction. We also call for greater investments in
innovation and technology development for long-term, multi-hazard and solution-driven research in the field of disaster risk management. [Suggested for Closure]

25 Leave a comment on paragraph 25 0 21. We recognize that ICTs are also increasingly a means to support the diversity of cultural expression and the fast-growing cultural and creative industries, and we affirm that comprehensive, practical digital strategies are needed for the preservation of cultural heritage and access to recorded information in the digital environment in all its forms. [Suggested for Closure]

26 Leave a comment on paragraph 26 0 22 20. We further recognise that increasing use of ICTs both generates certain environmental benefits and imposes certain environmental costs, and which we call for increased attention aim to mitigation reduce. We welcome the opportunity
afforded by sustainable energy to potentially decouple ICT growth from contributions to climate change, and we also note ICT’s catalytic value for deploying renewable energy, energy efficiency, smart and resilient cities city concepts, and Internet-enabled delivery of services, among other abatement options. However, we recognize that we must encourage further action to improve the energy resource
efficiency of ICTs, and to reuse, recycle, and safely dispose of e-waste. [Suggested for Closure]

27 Leave a comment on paragraph 27 0 1. 1 Bridging the Digital Divide

28 Leave a comment on paragraph 28 0 21 Divides

29 Leave a comment on paragraph 29 0 23. Despite the last decade’s achievements in ICT connectivity, we recognize express concern that many forms of digital divides remain – such as, both between and within countries and – as well as between women and men . We
note that divides are often closely linked to education levels
and existing inequalities, and we recognize that further divides can emerge in the future, slowing sustainable development.
Indicatively, we acknowledge that, as of 2015 2013, only around 40 43 per cent of people globally have internet access (34% in developing countries vs. 80% in developed countries, with significant variations by country), only 37 41 per cent of women have internet access, and an estimated 80 per cent of online content is available in only one of 10 languages. The poor are the most excluded from the
benefits of ICT. [Suggested for Closure, given new figures]

30 Leave a comment on paragraph 30 0 24. We further express concern that digital divides remain between developed and developing countries, and that many developing countries lack affordable access to ICTs. By 2015, only 34 per cent of households in developing countries have internet access, with significant variations by country, compared with more than 80 per cent in developed countries. This means that 2/3 of the population residing in developing countries remain offline. [Suggested for Closure, given new figures]

31 Leave a comment on paragraph 31 0 25 22. We affirm our commitment to bridging the digital divide divides, and we recognize that our approach must be multi-faceted multi-dimensional and include an evolving understanding of what constitutes access, emphasizing
the quality of that access. We acknowledge that speed, stability, affordability, language, local content, and accessibility for persons with disabilities are now core elements of quality, and that high-speed broadband is already an essential enabler of sustainable development. We moreover acknowledge that differences in individuals’ capabilities to both use and create ICTs represent a knowledge divide that perpetuates inequality. We note, too, the ambition to move beyond
“information societies” to “knowledge societies”, in which information is not only created and disseminated, but put to the benefit of human development. We appreciate recognize that divides may worsen or change with technological and service innovation, and we call on all stakeholders, particularly United Nations
entities that are facilitating WSIS Action Lines, to continue working together to regularly analyse the nature of the digital divide divides, study strategies to bridge them, and make their findings available to the international community. [Suggested for Closure]

32 Leave a comment on paragraph 32 0 26 23. We encourage underscore the need for further development of local content and services in different languages and formats that are accessible to all people, who also need the capabilities and capacities, including media, information, and digital literacy skills to make use of and further develop ICTs. Accordingly,
we recognize the vital importance of the principles of multilingualism in the information society to ensure the linguistic, cultural and historical diversity of all nations. We further recognize the value of
open-source ICT solutions. [Suggested for Closure]

33 Leave a comment on paragraph 33 0 27 24. We moreover call for a significant increase in access to ICTs and to provide universal and affordable access to the Internet to all by 2020. We welcome the targets for the growth of access, broadband for all, inclusiveness, innovation and partnerships in ICTs, as adopted under the Connect 2020 Agenda at the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference in 2014. [Suggested for Closure]

34 Leave a comment on paragraph 34 0 28. We also recognize digital divides in digital uses and literacy and the need to bridge them. [Suggested for Closure]

35 Leave a comment on paragraph 35 0 29 25. We emphasize our concern that only 37% 41% of women have internet access and draw attention to the gender digital divide, which persists in access to and use of ICTs, and also in ICT education, employment and other economic and social development factors. We recognize that ending the gender digital divide and achievement of SDG 5 on gender are mutually reinforcing efforts, and we
commit to mainstream gender in the WSIS process, including through a new emphasis on gender in the implementation and monitoring of WSIS Action Lines, with the support of relevant UN United Nations entities, including UN Women. We call for immediate measures to achieve gender equality in internet users by 2020, especially by significantly enhancing women’s and girls’ education and participation in ICTs, as users, content creators employees, entrepreneurs, innovators, and leaders.
We reaffirm our commitment to ensure women’s full participation in decision-making processes related to ICTs. [Suggested

36 Leave a comment on paragraph 36 0 26. We moreover note that divides are often closely linked to education levels and existing inequalities,
and that policy and financing frameworks also strongly influence quality of access to ICTs. We therefore call
for a special focus on actions that improve the enabling environment for ICTs and expand related education and capacity-building opportunities. Closure]

37 Leave a comment on paragraph 37 0 1. 2 Enabling Environment

38 Leave a comment on paragraph 38 0 27 30. We recognize that certain policies have substantially contributed to bridging the digital divide divides and ICT’s value for sustainable development, and we commit to continue identification and implementation of best and emerging practices for establishment and functioning of education, innovation, and investment frameworks for ICTs. [Suggested for Closure]

39 Leave a comment on paragraph 39 0 31. We recognize the importance of free flow of information and knowledge, as the amount of information distributed worldwide grows and the role of communication becomes all the more important. We acknowledge that mainstreaming ICTs in school curricula; open access to data and free flow of information; data; fostering of competition; creation of transparent, predictable independent, and non-discriminatory regulatory and legal systems; proportionate taxation and licensing fees; access to finance; facilitation of public-private partnerships; multi-stakeholder cooperation; national broadband strategies;
efficient allocation of spectrum; infrastructure-sharing models; communitybased community-based approaches; and public access facilities have in many countries facilitated significant gains in connectivity and sustainable development. [Suggested for Closure]

40 Leave a comment on paragraph 40 0 32 28. We recognise that a lack of access to affordable and reliable technologies and services remains a critical challenge in many developing countries, particularly African countries, least developed countries, landlocked developing countries, small island developing states, and middle-income countries, countries and territories under [foreign] occupation, and countries affected by conflict or natural
disasters
. All efforts should be deployed to reduce the price of ICTs and broadband access, noting that deliberate interventions, including through research and development and technology transfer on mutually agreed terms, may be necessary to spur lower-cost connectivity options.

41 Leave a comment on paragraph 41 0 29 33. In building the Information Society, States are strongly urged to take steps with a view to the avoidance of, and refrain from, any unilateral measure not in accordance with international law and the Charter of the United Nations that impedes the full achievement of economic and social
development by the population of the affected countries, and that hinders the well-being of their population.

42 Leave a comment on paragraph 42 0 34. We recognize that the radio frequency spectrum should be managed in the public interest and in accordance with principle of legality with full observance of national laws and regulations as well as relevant international agreements.

43 Leave a comment on paragraph 43 0 35. We call for a special focus on actions that improve the enabling environment for ICTs and expand related education and capacity-building opportunities. We also request CSTD and all Action Line facilitators to work with all stakeholders and to regularly identify and promote specific, detailed actions
to support the enabling environment for ICTs and development, as well as provide demand-driven policy advice, technical assistance and capacity-building to realize them. [Suggested for Closure]

44 Leave a comment on paragraph 44 0 1. 3 Financial Mechanisms

45 Leave a comment on paragraph 45 0 30 36. We welcome that total public and private spending on ICTs has increased substantially in the last decade, now reaching to the trillions annually, and has been complemented by a proliferation of new financing mechanisms, both results marking progress on paragraphs 23 and 27 of the Tunis Agenda. 31 [Suggested for Closure]

46 Leave a comment on paragraph 46 0 37. We recognise, however, that harnessing ICT for development, and bridging the digital divide, and creating enabling environments divides will require
greater and sustainable investment in ICT infrastructure and services, capacity building, promotion of joint R&D and transfer of technology on mutually agreed terms. These mechanisms remain a primary focus for all countries and people, particularly in developing countries. [Suggested for Closure]

47 Leave a comment on paragraph 47 0 38 32. We commit to prudent efficient public resource allocation to ICT deployment and development, recognizing the need for ICT budgeting across all sectors, especially education. We stress that capacity is a major barrier to closing digital divides, and we recommend that capacity development, including for innovation, should be emphasised to empower local experts and local communities to fully benefit from and contribute to ICT applications for development. We recognise the potential to improve connectivity, especially in remote and rural areas, through universal service funds, publicly-funded national backbones, and community-owned and managed last-mile network infrastructure, particularly in areas where market conditions make investment difficult. [Suggested for Closure]

48 Leave a comment on paragraph 48 0 39 33. We note the commitments made under the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, and recognise that official development assistance and other concessional financial flows for ICTs can make significant contributions to development outcomes, particularly where it can de-risk public and private investment, as well as increase the use ICTs to strengthen good governance and tax collection.
34 [Suggested for Closure]

49 Leave a comment on paragraph 49 0 40. We recognise further the critical importance of private sector investment in ICT infrastructure, content, and services, and we encourage governments to create legal and regulatory frameworks conducive to increased investment and innovation. We recognise the importance of public-private partnerships, universal access strategies and other approaches to this end. [Suggested for Closure]

50 Leave a comment on paragraph 50 0 41 35. We also call for a prominent profile for ICTs in the new technology facilitation mechanism established by the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, and for assessment consideration of how it can contribute to implementation of the WSIS Action Lines.

51 Leave a comment on paragraph 51 0 36 42. We regret note with concern the challenges in implementing the Digital Solidarity Fund, which was welcomed in Tunis as an innovative financial mechanism of a voluntary nature. We call for an ongoing evaluation of new innovative financing options in the annual review of WSIS outcomes. [Suggested

We reaffirm the importance of the prosecution of cybercrime, including cybercrime committed in one jurisdiction, but having effects in another. We further underline the necessity of effective and efficient tools and actions, at national and international levels, to promote international cooperation among, inter alia, law-enforcement agencies on cybercrime. We call upon governments in particular cooperation with other stakeholders to
develop necessary legislation
for greater capacity-building the investigation and technical assistance prosecution of cybercrime, noting existing
frameworks,
