CityNet discovers opportunities to collaborate with ICDI on Smart City

On the 2nd of July, International Climate Development Institute (ICDI) had a meeting with CityNet Secretariat in order to explore opportunities to collaborate on Smart City. From ICDI, Executive Director Kung-Yueh Camyale Chao visited the Secretariat together with ICDI representatives.

ICDI is a think-tank, one of CityNet Associate Members, that concerns the right of development under climate change issue, especialy Asia Pacific countries and Small Island Developing Countries (SIDS). ICDI supports vulnerable groups on capacity building, renewable energy implementation, and the climate adaptation depending on the local circumstance by providing its expertise on climate governance.

CityNet and ICDI found a common interest where the two organizations can potentially collaborate on, such as co-organizing smart city workshops and co-developing Global Smart Solution Report (GSSR). The first issue of GSSR was generated by Taiwan Smart City Solutions Alliance (TSSA) and ICLEI Kaohsiung Capacity Center (ICLEI KCC) together with ICDI and was launched in March 2019, during Sustainable City Forum in the Smart City Summit & Expo (SCSE) in Taipei. The report includes best solutions on green community, healthy cities (clean air, water, and public sanitation), and social engagement and community innovation from eight cities such as Yokohama, Kasiung, and Tainan. Please check the attached flyer of 2020 GSSR for more information.

Many developing countries are giving cities more #autonomy in decision and #policymaking; and more freedom in developing their local policy agendas. This, combined with the fact that most of the infrastructure in developing countries is yet to be built, presents an immense opportunity for taking an integrated and sustainable approach to #urbanenergy and related investments.

This workshop will bring together representatives of national and city governments, business and academic society to discuss good practices, trends and recent developments on sustainable energy in cities.
