To support the flagship programme ‘People-Centered Smart Cities’, UN-Habitat was looking for good examples of people-centered smart city initiatives for a new compendium on people-centered smart cities. UN-Habitat wanted to include solutions developed around the world by government agencies, international institutions, NGO’s research institutions, and private companies.
The compendium is planned to be a web-based platform based on an interactive map that showcases smart city initiatives, solutions, and initiatives that make a positive impact on the quality of life of people in cities, communities, and regions. UN-Habitat was particularly interested in finding examples of how technology has been used to improve the lives of the most vulnerable considering the following criteria:
- How well does the solution contribute to putting people and their needs at the center of smart city development?
- How well does the solution help to build equitable access to ICTs with a focus on internet connectivity, digital skills, and digital devices?
- How well this solution addresses how to drive inclusive digital transformation by developing systems, processes, and policies for managing data and digital services?
