Guwahati — Assam Don Bosco University Board Member Dr Subimal Bhattacharjee is member of the Expert Group Meeting (EGM) on “Advancing a Sustainable Information Society for All” set up by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) Division for Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM) to be held on 8 & 9 June 2015 at UN Headquarters, New York.
Dr Bhattacharjee will speak at the meeting on 9th June on Internet Security.
The meeting is organized in cooperation with the International Telecommunication Union.|
The meeting will bring together select international experts & officials of UN agencies to discuss ICT-related issues in the context of two important policy milestones: the emerging post-2015 sustainable development agenda and the General Assembly’s Overall Review of the outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), commonly known as WSIS+10, to take place in December 2015.
The ongoing inter-governmental negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda as well as discussions among Member States on the General Assembly Overall Review will benefit from the updated facts, analyses and any conclusions and recommendations of this EGM.
As the EGM is due to be held two weeks prior to the June negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda, and days before the first consultative meeting of the inter-governmental WSIS+10 review process, it aims to also serve as a briefing opportunity for Member States and other stakeholders.
