number of study groups. This lead study group is
responsible for the study of the appropriate core
Questions
has the responsibility, in consultation with all relevant

and prioritize the studies to be carried out by the study
groups, and
has to ensure the preparation of consistent, complete
and timely Recommendations.

(Recommendation A.7)
Goal:
To help advance the work of the ITU-T Study
Groups
Encourage participation of non-members /
members of other organizations (forums) /
experts / individuals

Joint coordination activity (JCA) (1/2)
(Recommendation A.1)
Tool for management of the work
programme of ITU-T when there is a
need to address a broad subject
covering the area of competence of
more than one study group. A JCA may
help to coordinate the planned work
effort in terms of subject matter, timeframes for meetings, collocated
meetings where necessary and
publication goals.

Joint coordination activity (JCA)
(2/2)
(Recommendation A.1)
Work continues to be conducted by the
relevant study groups and the results
are subject to the normal approval
processes within each study group.
A JCA may propose the establishment of
a Global Standards Initiative (GSI) in its
area of work.
Examples: JCA-ICT&CC, JCA-Mgt, JCAIPTV, JCA-CIT, JCA-HN, etc.

Joint Coordination Activity on ICT and climate change (JCAICT&CC) New!
The objectives of the Joint Coordination Activity on ICT and
climate change (JCA-ICT&CC) are to co-ordinate activity on ICT &
CC across ITU-T Study Groups, in particular SGs (5, 9, 13, 15 and
16), and to coordinate with ITU-R and ITU-D as well as 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 & CC and enable effective two-way communication
with these bodies.
Refer to SG5 and TSAG
Joint Coordination Activity on Management (JCA-Mgt)
The scope of the Joint Coordination Activity on Management (JCAMgt) is the coordination of the management standardization work
inside and outside of the ITU-T. This JCA includes the coordination
responsibilities previously addressed by the NGN Management
Focus Group (NGNMFG) regarding NGN management, but goes
beyond by including also the coordination of the work related to
the next generation of telecommunication management networks.

study group role of Study Group 13 for NGN
particularly between Study Groups 2, 11 and 13
but also including other study Groups involved in
the NGN work such as Study Group 12 (NGN
QoS) and Study Group 17 (Security).
