The report emphasizes the kind of transformative solutions that are enabled by broadband and provides practical examples of how this technology can contribute to reducing greenhouse gasses (GHGs), mitigating and adapting to the effects of climate change, and promoting resource efficiency.

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.

It concludes with 10 recommendations for policy makers and global leaders to hasten and strengthen the ability of ICT and broadband to accelerate global progress towards a low-carbon future.
