Webinar on “Accelerating cities’ transformation through standards”

 With over 80 per cent of the world’s population expected to live in cities by 2050, cities need to re-imagine the way in which resources and services are managed and delivered, in order to improve the sustainability and efficiency of city services, mitigate against climate and environmental risks, and safeguard the wellbeing of every citizen.
In this Webinar, we will explore the role of international standards in providing the necessary guidance to make cities smarter and more sustainable. Developed based on consensus and best practices from around the world, international standards can provide important guidance and policy recommendations that cities can use to set their priorities, navigate global challenges and implement innovative solutions for becoming a smart sustainable city. The Webinar will be joined by smart city experts from leading organizations who will be sharing valuable insights on this topic.
