Introduction
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is organizing a workshop on "Smart Sustainable Cities in Latin America" in Lima, Peru, on 5 December 2013. This workshop will take place back to back with the ITU-T Study Group 5 meeting, the Focus Group on Smart Sustainable Cities meeting, the Focus Group on Smart Water Management meeting, the Joint Coordination Activity on ICT & Climate Change meeting and the Workshop on "With ICT's everywhere - How safe is EMF in Latin America?".

Objectives
Rapid urbanization has placed immense pressure on the existing city infrastructures to provide a high quality of life to all city inhabitants. As a result, the concept of smart sustainable cities has emerged as the remedy to this unsustainable development with Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) expected to play a key role.
 
This workshop will discuss how to define smart sustainable cities and the discourse that commonly associated with it. This workshop will also look at the role ICTs play in shaping smart sustainable cities from the ICT industry perspective.
 
Target Audience
This workshop will bring together leading specialists in the field, from top policy-makers to engineers, designers, planners, government officials, regulators, standards experts and other related stakeholders.
