ITU Publishes Case Study on the Role of ICTs in Addressing Climate Change in Ghana

September 2012: The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has released a report titled “Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation: The Case of Ghana,” which focuses on the question: How can developing countries effectively integrate ICT tools within climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies?

Using Ghana as a case study, the report presents the potential of ICTs to contribute to climate change adaptation and mitigation, and provides concrete lessons learned and makes practical suggestions aimed at developing country decision makers and practitioners.

The report was officially launched at the second ITU Green Standards Week held in Paris, France, from 17-21 September 2012. [Publication: Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation: The Case of Ghana] [IISD RS Story on the Second ITU Green Standards Week]
