Need for this publication also arose from ITU’s recognition of the important relationships between ICT use and young people including the role of ICT in enhancing the development of children, and the contributions that young people can make to the development of an inclusive Information Society (World Summit on the Information Society, Tunis Commitment, articles 24 and 25). These were emphasized by the resolution of, the World Telecommunication Development Conference (Resolution 38, 2006) which called upon ITU to “… promote the interests and capabilities of youth in ICT …” and “… develop and strengthen actions to make ICT s accessible to children and youth, particularly the disadvantaged and marginalized, thereby bridging the digital divide.”
