Because it uses an international natural resource--the radio spectrum--Amateur Radio must organize nationally and internationally for better mutual use of the radio spectrum among radio amateurs throughout the world, to develop Amateur Radio worldwide, and to successfully interact with the agencies responsible for regulating and allocating radio frequencies.
At the international level, national societies throughout the world work together for the international good of Amateur Radio under the auspices of a representative democracy, the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU).
The IARU Constitution, last amended in 1989, organizes the Union into three Regional Organizations that correspond to the three radio regions of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

 International Telecommunications Union
The evolution of telecommunications technology during the twentieth century is so great that telecommunications effects almost every aspect of life and the role of the ITU continues to extend into new areas of concern.
The three major areas of jurisdiction for the ITU are: (1) distribution of radio and satellite services and assignments (2) establishment of international telecommunications standards; and (3) regulation of international information exchange such as telephony, telegraphy, and computer data.

Many projects have been launched to solve the problem, but without active involvement of young scientists and engineers in developing countries, without wide dissemination of the know-how, there is no hope to bridge the digital gap in the foreseeable future.
Training activities on digital radio have been initiated at ICTP schools and colleges, some of which were carried out in collaboration with other entities, such as the International Union of Radio Science URSI, and the International Telecommunication Union Telecommunication Development Bureau ITU/BDT.
These activities included tutorial lectures and laboratory work, where both computer networking and innovative digital radio techniques were experienced by some 1500 participants from all the continents since 1996.
