Press Release from Côte D’Ivoire in ITU
By: Côte D’Ivoire
Members of the International Telecommunication Union,
The Delegation of the Republic of Côte D’Ivoire is proud to have worked diligently with nations like Germany, Mexico, Austria and many others to further the development of solutions regarding ITU initiatives benefiting global Indigenous Communities. Côte D’Ivoire has urged and will continue to urge the UN General Assembly to draft and implement a new powerful tool on the international stage: a Declaration of Digital and Technological Human Rights. This effort is motivated by the understanding that as the world enters a new digital golden age, there are potential corrupting forces that could seek to harm large swathes of the Global Population – especially those communities that are already struggling with issues of equality and equity. It is the responsibility of governments worldwide to promote civic access in society for all people. By proposing such a measure for the international community, it provides aforementioned community a chance rarely seen. This proposal would give the international community the chance to get in front of a potential issue, instead of being forced to play catch-up like we have had to many times in the past.
