In preparing the Secretary General’s contribution to this work of the Council, we are asking for your inputs to the debate.

Tell us what you expect from ITU in the future, where we should direct our efforts to best serve everyone, including you; and which challenges we should be prepared to meet.

We invite you to participate in this Public Consultation. We are looking forward to your opinions.

Please share your views via this interactive platform or submit your written contributions by email to

Following requests for an extension of the deadline for contributions, the closing date for content submission has been extended until September 23, 2013.

Note: The remit of the ITU is defined by the Basic Texts. The strategic planning process aims to define the strategy to be implemented within the ITU's mandate and therefore proposals shall be within this scope.

PP Resolution 71 is called "Strategic Plan". If you look at it, you will see that it does not contain a set of steps meant to achieve a goal, so it is not a plan. It contains a hodge-podge set of goals, activities, and wishes, many of which are too low-level to be strategic.

So I would suggest to start by breaking that document into three coherent

1) Strategic vision (but this is really contained in the CS, so there isn't much more to say)

2) Activites related to the strategic vision (this is what is mostly there

3) Intended goals (that is, measurable outcomes)

Then you would be in a position to add a new piece:

3) Plan to achieve the intended goals.
