UNESCAP (The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific) is producing a major Report on cities in the Asia-Pacific region, titled the Future of Asia and Pacific Cities 2019 Report, which will be launched at the seventh Asia-Pacific Urban Forum in 2019. It will be a policy advocacy Report, and its purpose will be to support inclusive and sustainable long-term thinking and decision-making by national and local governments by providing a conceptual framework for solutions to the problem of localizing the global agendas in Asia-Pacific cities. To these ends, the Report will critically assess and provide knowledge and best practices of the means of implementation on a range of urban sustainability areas, including the future of urban finance, smart urban data and technologies, resilient city governance, and urban/territorial planning.

To these ends, ESCAP and Singapore’s Centre for Liveable Cities (CLC) are partnering to develop the Report’s chapter on the Future of Smart Urban Data and Technologies, which will focus on how cities in the region can create sustainable communities and contribute to achieving the SDGs through the application of data innovations and Smart City development, and will highlight issues around the governance of Smart Cities, the digital divide, the gaps in technical capacities and skills to implement and run smart systems, data limitations, and privacy concerns. This will include showcasing approaches being developed by ASEAN’s Smart Cities Network, under Singapore’s Chairmanship.

As part of this process, ESCAP and CLC will co-host a thematic consultation on Smart Cities in Asia and the Pacific. The purpose of this consultation is to provide stakeholder inputs for the overall Future of Asia and Pacific Cities 2019 Report on the key thematic area of Smart Cities. It will focus on a review of challenges and future opportunities related to Smart Cities in Asia and the Pacific.
