ITU Global ICT Capacity Building Symposium (CBS)

 

What is it?

The ITU Global ICT Capacity Building Symposium (CBS) is the main global event for capacity development in the field of information and communication technology (ICT). The Symposium takes place biennially and brings together stakeholders from across the world to discuss trends and developments in the sector and their implications for human and institutional capacity building. CBS initially focused only on matters related to human resources and thus was targeted mainly to human resources practitioners. It has since broadened its scope to embrace human and institutional capacity building, drawing on a global network of expertise from different regions and stakeholders.

This event provides an opportunity for participants to:

  • Share best practices and experiences from all over the world;
  • Undertake in-depth analysis of human capacity development in order to improve skills in the development and use of ICTs;
  • Explore new trends on the role of training institutions in a constantly changing ICT environment;
  • Strengthen the collaboration among global ICT human capacity development community;
  • Develop and launch concrete partnerships aimed at mobilizing resources to address global needs.
