8 ITU-T ITU-T SG5 Joint Coordination Activity on ICTs & Climate Change (JCA-ICT&CC) The purpose of the JCA-ICT&CC is: o to provide a visible contact point for ICT and Climate Change activities in ITU-T; o to seek co-operation from external bodies working in the field of ICT and climate change; o to enable effective two-way communication with these bodies. External bodies include representatives from relevant SDOs such as IEC, ISO or relevant academia, consortia or fora. 7
