The Global Network Resiliency Platform (#REG4COVID) is a place where ICT regulators, policy makers and other interested stakeholders can share information, view what initiatives and measures have been introduced around the world designed to help ensure communities remain connected, during the COVID-19 crisis.
In a first phase of analysis, the platform served to identify key insights from exceptional temporary regulatory measures taken during the “emergency” phase (April – September 2020).
With a new second survey to its members and other ICT stakeholders, ITU is now looking at the “recovery” phase to address: What next? Are these measures sustainable? How have regulatory frameworks evolved? What long-term policy and regulatory trends have been introduced for and by the different groups of stakeholders? What works and what doesn’t work?
