Within the context of the 10th anniversary celebration of the ITU UNESCO Broadband Commission on Sustainable Development and complementing the State of Broadband 2020 edition, case studies were prepared highlighting initiatives taken by contributing Commissioners to making an impact in two areas:  supporting progress towards the achievements of the Commission’s 2025 targets,  and in implementing the Commission’s Response to COVID-19 Agenda for Action identifying lessons learned so far for better preparedness.
