WTDC 2014: ITU World Telecommunication Development Conference Background Information

In 2014 the ITU will hold a conference focused entirely on development, as it does every four years. This is not a treaty conference; rather, the WTDC is a Sector Conference that sets out the Membership’s strategic vision and plans for the ITU’s work in the field of telecommunications development.
