The 2030 ICT Alliance for the Americas is an initiative of the OAS Secretary General that strives to promote the region’s development through ICTs, recognizing the need to support OAS member states on the road to mainstreaming ICTs into their national policies in the framework of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
On June 14, 2016, in the framework of the 46 Regular Session of the OAS General Assembly, held in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, the “2030 ICT Alliance for the Americas” was launched with support from the CITEL Secretariat.
Objectives of the Alliance:
- Work together to contribute to the global goal to connect 1.5 billion people more by the year 2020.
- Ensure that every public school in the Americas is connected to the Internet before the year 2030, and to create relevant local contents.
- Promote digital training and contribute to improving the quality of education, and develop talents for the new digital economy.
- Strengthen democratic participation in the Americas through ICTs.
With the Alliance, the region’s development is being promoted, through the ICTs, in order to mobilize resources and concrete products that might contribute, among other things, to promoting digital training to raise the quality of education in the Americas and developing talent for the new digital economy. The companies that are participating to date are: América Móvil, CISCO, ISOC, Millicom, Telefónica, Viasat and the new accesion to the Alliance in January 2020 of AT&T.
