Objectives of the Side Event The event has the following objectives: ● Showcase the launch of Generation Connect, the Generation Connect Visionaries Board (GCVB), and the 6 ITU Regional Youth Groups. ● Provide an opportunity to reach youth who may be interested in engaging with Generation Connect in the future. ● Highlight ways in which Generation Connect is seeking to engage in relevant UN processes and mechanisms. ● Open a dialogue to inform the work of Generation Connect, including the WTDC-21 Youth Summit Generation Connect3 – Showcasing Generation Connect will involve discussing the overall ITU Youth Strategy, emphasizing the three pillars of the strategy; Empower, Engage, and Participate. (...) The overarching theme of WTDC-21 will be “Connecting the unconnected to achieve sustainable development”. (...) One theme of the session will be: “What does it mean to you to be connected?” This theme will be incorporated through presenting a short Generation Connect video where young people give their own responses to this question. https://www.youtube.com/watch?

I am delighted to participate in this side event, that is organized by the Government of Mongolia in partnership with key actors in the connectivity area - - ESCAP, UN-OHRLLS, the International Think Tank for Landlocked Developing Countries -- focusing on the topical issue of “Connectivity for All (In Transport and Through AI).” 2. (...) I am glad that this side event will showcase both established and new solutions, that were devised to deal with the prevailing connectivity challenges. 4 8. Examples include the use of artificial intelligence, transport corridors, dry ports and intermodal linkages together with smart connectivity along the Asian Highway Network. 9. (...) I look forward to interventions that will highlight transport connectivity in Asia-Pacific region, the necessary infrastructure, policies and regulatory frameworks needed to ensure connectivity for all, and the financial, technical and technological support that the countries in the region have received in this area. 17.

Sustainable transport can connect remote rural communities and plays a crucial role in connecting countries, especially countries in special situations, to global markets, promoting trade opportunities and stimulating economic growth. (...) As a result, they remain among the least connected countries. In addition, the various modes of transport contribute to global connectivity in different ways. (...) What are effective solutions and best practices towards improving transport connectivity of countries in special situations, such as LDCs, SIDS and LLDCs, especially with regard to connecting to global markets and trade?

This is why recently, my Office and the ITU have launched a groundbreaking set of targets to achieve universal and meaningful connectivity for 2030. But even as we stress the importance of universal connectivity, we must recognize that the challenges to connectivity during situations of crisis, disaster and emergencies are particularly profound. In these times when people face life-threatening harms and dangers; this is when they need connectivity more urgently than ever before: to have access to critical information and services, to stay connected with loved ones, to provide truthful information and perspectives. (...) This is why the Secretary-General, as part of his Digital Cooperation Roadmap, has called for accelerating discussions on connectivity as part of emergency preparedness, responses and aid.
