Know-how: Developing the right skills

Ta​king into account the disparities in the ability of developing countries, relative to developed ones, to access, implement and influence international ITU-T standards, one of the core areas of the BSG programme is geared towards assisting developing countries in acquiring the right skills and capabilities for international standards-making.  This page introduces our e-learning courses and primers, and provides information about our hands-on interactive training sessions and related events. These are intended to help dele​gates from developing countries become familiar with how ITU-T Study Groups work and how to navigate the standards development process in order to reach their standardization objectives.

Developing the right skills
