UNWSIS Context

The World Summit Awards has been initiated in 2003 in the framework of the UN World Summit on the Information Society (UN WSIS) held in Geneva. The declared aim of the conference was to make Information and Communication Technology (ICT) accessible to everyone and to bridge the digital divide. The World Summit Awards (WSA) was established as a means to achieve this and has been working since then on putting the UN WSIS goals into action.



WSA South East Asia categories mirror the WSA Global categories which reflect the UN WSIS action lines and are updated regularly to meet the development of the markets.
