​​​​Working​ Group on Broadband and Climate Change: MWC 2011, ​​​16 February 2011, Barcelona, Spain.

The Working Group on Climate Change was launched and held its first meeting at the Mobile World Congress 2011 with theme of: Transformative Solutions for Climate Change, The Need for Effective ICT Policy Development

Speech by ITU Secretary-General, Dr Hamadoun I. Touré​


This first meeting of the Commission’s Broadband and Climate Change Working Group, held in MWC 2011 and chaired by Mr Hans Vestberg CEO of Ericsson.

Broadband Commission Working Groups offer a valuable opportunity to focus on specific issues and concrete outputs within the bigger broadband theme.

The timing of the launch of this particular work group is especially appropriate, in the wake of COP 16 in Cancún, which heralded two significant shifts in the United Nations’ approach to climate change.​
