Dear Sir/Madam,

Please find attached an electronic copy of the report "Implementing WSIS
Outcomes: A Ten-year Review". It was prepared by the CSTD secretariat to
assist the Commission in considering the ten-year review of WSIS outcomes,
which it has been requested to make, through the ECOSOC, to the General
Assembly, in 2015. Along with the report, which will be also sent to you as
a print-out copy in May, I would like to warmly thank you for participating
in the online consultation concerning the review. Contributions that were
submitted by governments and all stakeholders during the period from 27 June
to 15 September 2014 served as important evidence in the making of the
report. They are also available to the Commission and to the general public
on the CSTD website http://unctad.org/en/Pages/CSTD/WSIS-10yearReview.aspx
<http://unctad.org/en/Pages/CSTD/WSIS-10yearReview.aspx>  (with the
exception of those who did not wish their contributions to be uploaded).
Please be informed that the discussions on the CSTD ten-year review of WSIS
will take place in Geneva during the Commission's 18th session from 4-8 May,
2015. Web cast will be made available of the discussion concerning this
topic on Tuesday, 5 May.

More information on the session is available at:

Best regards, 

Anne Miroux
