Title: Smart governance for smart sustainable cities and settlements.


We are facing today unprecedented societal, environmental and economic global challenges. Government and public services are failing to address solutions. We are at a point when we are all called to act collectively to face a number of these challenges. The concept of Smart sustainable cities and settlement aims to provide innovative solutions to cities and settlements using ICTs and other means to improve quality of life, efficiency, of urban and communities operations and services in different areas (mobility, environment, people, living and public service) for the present without compromising the need for the future generations with respect to the economic, social and environment.  However, it is important to leverage the power of technology to reach these goals by improving management, reducing inefficiencies and generating sustainable public values. We will discuss in this presentation how the emerging/frontier and disruptive technologies leveraged in smart cities initiatives could be oriented toward sustainable public value generation. This question is directly related to the governance, the role of the technology in this governance and how the intelligence of smart cities could be turned into sustainable development.
