CityNet and WCCD sign partnership agreement to promote city sustainability in Asia

CityNet and the World Council on City Data (WCCD) have signed a new partnership agreement, with the shared goal of helping cities in Asia become more sustainable, resilient, smart, prosperous and inclusive. The CityNet and WCCD partnership will provide support to cities in Asia that are interested in implementing ISO 37120, the first international standard for sustainable cities.

According to WCCD President and CEO, Dr. Patricia McCarney:

“This new partnership will further the goals of CityNet and the WCCD to increase support to Asian cities for data collection and data analysis to help build city sustainability. As the WCCD continues to operationalise ISO 37120, we look forward to working with new city partners, and revitalizing our links with our longstanding network of cities in Asia.”

The WCCD will be present at the Executive Committee Meeting and International Seminar in Sidoarjo, Indonesia and represented by Beth Lorimer. Please do not hesitate to contact Beth to speak to her about the work of the WCCD and how your city can get involved.

Established in 2014, the WCCD is operationalising ISO 37120 globally. With 100 indicators, around 17 themes supporting city services and quality of life, ISO 37120 is supported by the WCCD Open City Data Portal which allows for cutting-edge visualisations and comparisons. The WCCD continues the work of the Global City Indicators Facility (GCIF) which includes over 255 cities from 82 countries as part of its network.
