Hawai’i’s Shared Futures By Vision Foresight Strategy

The Global Information Society

The second World Information Society Report, which looks at the growth of the global information society, is a joint publication of the International Telecommunication Union and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).  The report follows up on the progress of activities that were identified as important by the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), held in 2003 and 2005.  Participants at the WSIS recognized that the global digital divide needs to be bridged, and they identified activities that need to be conducted in order to expand the borders of the information society and bring more people into its realm.

The report includes composite indices of data that measure the global information society.
