Our Mission

To facilitate and support the implementation of the dispositions of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities on the accessibility of Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) and assistive technologies.

To accomplish its mission, G3ict works in collaboration with its constituents to: 

  • Raise awareness on effective public policies, private sector initiatives, and standardization references. It reaches key stakeholders via conferences and showcases, briefings, web activities, publications, and social media;

  • Facilitate the sharing of solutions and good practices through a Web-based platform www.g3ict.org, an electronic newsletter, worldwide databases on country achievements, companies ICT accessibility policies, and case studies, books and white papers from leading authors and institutions on specific areas of technology or public policy;

  • Foster harmonization and standardization by promoting the work of ITU, ISO, ETSI, ANSI, W3C, DAISY Consortium and other leading Standards Development Organizations;

  • Support policy makers with capacity building programs and benchmarking. Deliverables include the online "ITU-G3ict e-Accessibility Policy Toolkit for Persons with Disabilities" and its companion handbook which was developed as a joint publication of ITU, G3ict, and the Centre for Internet and Society, in collaboration with The Hans Foundation, and the "CRPD 2013 ICT Accessibility Progress Report," developed in collaboration with Disabled People's International (DPI).
