1 Overview of SG5 and SG5RG for Africa activities
Guy-Michel KOUAKOU ARTCI (COTE D’IVOIRE) (Vice-Chair of SG 5) (Chairman of SG5 Regional Group)

2 SG5 General area of study

3 Structure of ITU-T SG5 ITU-T SG5 WP2/5 WP3/5 WP1/5
“Environment and climate change ” Q.12 Guide And Terminology WP1/5 Damage prevention and safety WP2/5 Electromagnetic fields: emission, immunity and human exposure WP3/5 ICT and climate change Study Group 5 has two working parties. WP1 studies protection of telecommunication systems and telecommunication personnel and users of telecommunication networks from lightning, induction from power lines. WP2 studies emission, immunity and security of telecommunication systems. EMC issues dealing with home networks are studied in Question 8. Also, it is necessary to include studies about protection from lightning and power line induction. The earthing system is essential for the countermeasure for the protection from lighting. These aspects are studied with relevant questions such as Q.4 and 6 and in WP1. 6 Questions 5 Questions 7Questions

4 Organization of the work of SG5
Working Party 1/5 “Damage prevention and safety” WP1/5 is responsible for studies relating to protection of telecommunication installations in order to reduce damages and achieve safety of telecom personnel and users of telecom services. Work areas: Q1/5 - Copper cables, networks and fibre-optic connection hardware for broadband access Q2/5 - Protective components and assemblies Q3/5 - Interference to telecommunication networks due to power systems and electrified railway systems Q4/5 - Resistibility and safety in telecommunications Q5/5 - Lightning protection and earthing of telecommunication systems

5 Organization of the work of SG5
WP2/5 is responsible for studies relating to achieve EMC of telecommunication installations and safety of telecom personnel and population against electromagnetic fields. Work areas: Q6/5 - EMC issues arising from the convergence of IT and communication equipment Q7/5 - Human exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) due to radio systems and mobile equipment Q8/5 - EMC issues in home networks Q9/5 - Generic and product family EMC recommendations for telecommunication equipment Q10/5 - Security of telecommunication and information systems concerning the electromagnetic environment Q11/5 - EMC requirements for the Information Society

6 Organization of the work of SG5
Working Party 3/5 “ICT and climate change” WP3/5 is responsible for studies relating to ICT, environment and climate change, development of methodologies for evaluating the ICT effects on climate change and publishing guidelines for using ICTs in an eco-friendly way. Work areas: Q13/5 - Environmental impact reduction including e-waste Q14/5 - Setting up a low cost sustainable telecommunication infrastructure for rural communications in developing countries Q15/5 - ICTs and adaptation to the effects of climate change Q16/5 - Leveraging and enhancing the ICT Environmental sustainability Q17/5 - Energy efficiency for the ICT sector and harmonization of environmental standards Q18/5 - Methodologies for the assessment of environmental impact of ICT Q19/5 - Power feeding systems

7 Joint Coordination Activity on ICTs & Climate Change (JCA-ICT&CC)
The purpose of the JCA-ICT&CC is: to provide a visible contact point for ICT and Climate Change activities in ITU-T; to seek co-operation from external bodies working in the field of ICT and climate change; 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.

8 SG5 REGIONAL GROUPS In accordance with Resolution 54 (creation of regional groups), and Resolutions 44, 59 and 72 (WTSA-08), Study Group 5, at its meeting in May 2009 created the SG5 Regional Group for Africa. Three other regional groups: Regional group for Arab region Regional group for America Regional group for Asia Pacific Details in paragraphs 2 to 6. While some may think that the past is the past, wisdom is also what we learn from the past. These paragraphs make interesting reading and should be kept in mind to avoid repeating the same mistakes Dates 20/01/2009

9 SG5RG for Africa Objectives
Encourage national authorities, operators and consumers from developing countries to work together and better contribute to ITU-T activities on the achievement of EMC in telecommunication installations as well as on EMF and human health Enhance the collaboration on all activities related to “Climate change” in conformity with SG5 extended mandate Dates 20/01/2009

10 TERMS OF REFERENCE (1/2) To encourage active participation of African administrations, regulators and operators to the work of SG5 and to report to them SG5 outcomes and deliverables To boost discussions on EMC and EMF effects on health challenges facing administrations, operators and regulators in the continent To encourage participation of African countries to workshops and other ITU-T Study Group 5 events To reflect the relevant priorities of the continent as per SG5 mandate To encourage African countries to contribute to the development of new/revised ITU-T Recommendations on EMF effects and report on their respective “Climate change” activities Dates 20/01/2009

11 TERMS OF REFERENCE (2/2) To disseminate relevant information provided by ITU-T on EMF standards, compliance and measurement methods applicable to telecommunication networks, to the safety of telecommunication personnel and users against current and voltages, and telecommunication personnel and the general public from electromagnetic fields generated by telecommunication installation To provide a better follow up from and to the focal points identified on “Climate change” activities launched by ITU To collaborate with African Telecommunication Union (ATU) Act as a liaison body between administrations, operators, regulators and ITU-T in matters relating to Environment and Climate Change. Dates 20/01/2009

12 (Study period ) Questionnaire on EMF exposure send on 5 February 2010 “TSB Collective letter 1/SG5RG-AFR”. Joint Workshop RGSG5 and RGSG12 “Delivering good quality telecommunication service in a safe environment in Africa", held on 26‑27 July 2010 and first SG5 Regional Group meeting held on 29 July 2010 in Kenya Workshop “Practical measurement of EMF exposure”, held on July 2011 and Regional Group meeting held on 27 July 2011 in Botswana Workshop on tackling climate change and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) Measurement held on 19 July 2012 Regional Group meeting held on 20 July 2011 in Benin Adhoc meetings held in each SG5 meeting since November 2010 Dates 20/01/2009

13 (Study period ) The objectives of the regional group for this new study period : Improve our organization and working method to produce relevant deliverables; Recruit new members that can contribute to the work of RGSG5 and foster participation; Ensure consistency in participation and deliverables; Improve our involvement in climate change work; Establish relationship with regional organization for the implementation of relevant SG5 standard as a directive. New structure with two working group: Working group 1 on Damage prevention and safety and EMF Working group 2 on ICTs and climate change. Management team Chairman: Mr KOUAKOU Guy-Michel Vice chairman: Mr Peter Ulanga (chairman of the working Group 2) Vice chairman: Mr Vincent NAMRONA (chairman of Working Group 1) Vice chairman: Ms Fatoumata S.
