    Egypt Partakes in ITU SG5 Meeting

    Date published: 16 September 2019

    Egypt, represented by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), will remotely participate in the ITU Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) Study Group (SG5) (Environment, Climate Change and Circular Economy) meeting, held on September 16-20, at ITU headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

    The ITU-T Study Groups assemble experts from around the world to develop international standards known as ITU-T Recommendations, which act as defining elements in the global ICT infrastructure.

    SG5 is responsible for studies on methodologies for evaluating ICT effects on climate change and publishing guidelines for using ICTs in an eco-friendly way. Under its environmental mandate, SG5 is, also, responsible for studying design methodologies to reduce ICTs and e-waste's adverse environmental effects, for example, through recycling of ICT facilities and equipment.

    SG5 outcomes are aimed at protecting telecommunication equipment and installations against damage and malfunction due to electromagnetic disturbances, such as those from lightning. In this field, SG5 is one of the world's most experienced and respected standardization bodies.
