ITU allocates global radio spectrum and satellite orbits, develop the technical standards that ensure networks and technologies seamlessly interconnect, and strive to improve access to ICTs to underserved communities worldwide.
ITU is committed to connecting all the world's people - wherever they live and whatever their means.
Through its work, ITU protect and support everyone's fundamental right to communicate. Today, ICTs underpin everything we do. They help manage and control emergency services, water supplies, power networks and food distribution chains. They support health care, education, government services, financial markets, transportation systems and environmental management. And they allow people to communicate with colleagues, friends and family anytime, and almost anywhere.
With the help of our membership, ITU brings the benefits of modern communication technologies to people everywhere in an efficient, safe, easy and affordable manner. ITU membership reads like a Who's Who of the ICT sector. We're unique among UN agencies in having both public and private sector membership. So in addition to our 193 Member States, ITU membership includes ICT regulators, leading academic institutions and some 700 private companies.
In an increasingly interconnected world, ITU is the single global organization embracing all players in this dynamic and fast-growing sector.

ITU's role in the ICG

Following the UNISPACE III, held in 1999 the ITU become one of the "founding" observer to the AT10 on GNSS. As of 2005, the ITU is an observer to the ICG, regularly participating on the ICG meetings and activities, particularly in the WG A - Compatibility and Interoperability

Presentations made in the ICG annual meetings

The ITU is making a presentation on every annual ICG meetings.
