In his Millennium Report, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan stressed the importance for developing countries to benefit from opportunities emerging from the digital revolution, and stressed the vital role volunteers are playing in helping to bridge the digital divide between industrialized and developing countries, in key fields like health, education, income generation, gender equity, environment and humanitarian aid. UNITeS, the United Nations Information Technology Service, promotes volunteer involvement as fundamental to efforts focused on information and communications technologies for development (ICT4D). The United Nations Volunteers programme coordinates this UN ICT initiative.
