PN 2022-07

Local government units (LGUs) have started exploring smart city solutions to address urbanization challenges. Smart city enablers, such as partnerships, smart city champions, information and communications technology personnel, and digitized data, are already present in some LGUs. However, LGUs still face issues related to funding and infrastructure, data interoperability, public uptake, and sustainability of smart city initiatives. This Policy Note maintains that addressing these challenges requires actions at the local level as well as the national government's support in developing policies and standards to improve data flow, promoting technology and innovation-powered cities, and ensuring transparency and accountability in the implementation of smart city initiatives.
