The mission of the Telecommunication Development Sector (ITU-D) is to promote the right to communicate of all inhabitants of the planet through access to infrastructure and information and communication services.

In this regard, our mission is to:

  • Assist countries in the field of information and communication technologies (ICTs), in facilitating the mobilization of technical, human and financial resources needed for their implementation, as well as in promoting access to ICTs.
  • Promote the extension of the benefits of ICTs to all the world’s inhabitants.
  • Promote and participate in actions that contribute towards narrowing the digital divide.
  • Develop and manage programmes that facilitate information flow geared to the needs of developing countries.

The mission encompasses ITU’s dual responsibility as a United Nations specialized agency and an executing agency for implementing projects under the United Nations development system or other funding arrangements.
