Publication date:
Type of publication:

This report aims to show how broadband can contribute to reducing GHG, as well as mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change. To fulfill this potential a new policy framework is required. To illustrate this, this report showcases best government practices in mobilizing ICT to reduce GHGs and build inclusive societies. This report proposes 10 recommendations for policy makers that we believe would hasten and strengthen the ability of ICT and broadband to accelerate global progress towards the low-carbon economy and further progress towards achieving the four targets set by the Broadband Commission.
