WSIS+10 Review Events

Second WSIS+10 Review Event - Geneva, 2014

UNESCO’s Deputy Director-General, Mr Getachew Engida, as a co-organizer of the second WSIS+10 Review event hosted by ITU from 10-13 June 2014, provided participants of the High-level Event with a new, final, UNESCO proposed compromise text on the Media Action Line. After long negotiations, the UNESCO proposed text was finally accepted without amendment and therefore all Action Line texts could be adopted together with the statement and vision texts, by the plenary by consensus. The endorsed text can be accessed here.
