About the WSIS+10 High-Level Event
The WSIS+10 High-Level Event will be an extended version of the WSIS Forum. It is designed to review the progress made in the implementation of the WSIS outcomes under the mandates of participating agencies, and to take stock of achievements in the last 10 years based on reports of WSIS Stakeholders, including those submitted by countries, Action Line Facilitators and other stakeholders.
The WSIS+10 High-Level Event will review the WSIS Outcomes (2003 and 2005) related to the WSIS Action Lines with the view of developing proposals on a new vision beyond 2015, potentially including new targets. This process will take into account the decisions of the 68th Session of the UN General Assembly.
Open Consultation Process
The preparatory process is an open and inclusive consultation among WSIS Stakeholders (governments, private sector, civil society, international organizations and relevant regional organizations) focused on developing multistakeholder consensus on two draft Outcome Documents, the thematic aspects, and innovations on the format of the Event. The two draft Outcome Documents, to be developed during the open consultation process and submitted for consideration by the WSIS+10 High-Level Event are:
Draft WSIS+10 Statement on the Implementation of WSIS Outcomes.
Draft WSIS+10 Vision for WSIS Beyond 2015 under mandates of participating agencies.
