Governance and Planning

Governance and Planning

This post is also available in: daDanish

Smart Cities pose many challenges to existing city and regional planning systems, not least the need to move transversely between technical, political, and institutional silos within municipal administrations. Technical solutions that do not take into account the local governance and planning contexts are likely to fail outright or significantly under-deliver the potential benefits. Moreover, many Smart City solutions generate a number of new or more complex challenges for municipal and regional governments including: data and network security issues, privacy, data ownership, legal and regulatory compliance, and managing legacy architecture and systems.

Our approach

We help our clients to not only understand the technical components of Smart Cities, but also more importantly the social, cultural, political, and institutional opportunities and challenges to help them bring their Smart City vision into reality.
