Under the theme of Enhancing Urban Resilience through Smart Techology, Mr. Kendra Hirata, CityNet Yokohama Project Office’s Director, delivered a key speech on mainstreaming disaster issues within each city to achieve better coordination, make better plans, and ultimately be better decision-makers.

In response to a question on the importance of data for city-to-city cooperation, Mr. Hirata mentioned how data integration helps cities to increased coordination. He added that fully coordinating data still represented a challenge, but that multiple good initiatives are starting to come up, citing some of CityNet’s work in Yokohama, the Philippines and Indonesia as examples.
