Smart governments – international, national, sub-national and local – recognize the sustainability opportunity. It’s no wonder that “smart cities” have taken up the sustainable mantel: urbanization means that cities will expend the majority of natural resources and emit the majority of pollution, unless something can be done.
Technology innovation promises a sustainable future. It’s no wonder that cities are seen as major contributors to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including the focused SDG 11, “Sustainable Cities and Communities”.
It’s going to take more than technology alone. Governance mechanisms that enable smart financing and engage stakeholders is required.
