Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is changing the way cities evolve, helping to respond to the challenges of rapid urbanization and the pressure that is exercised on infrastructure while citizens’ expectations for better quality services keep rising.
The rapid growth in mobile and broadband penetration in Rwanda presents new opportunities for innovation that leverages the tremendous capacity of our youth to innovate and transform our cities into smart cities.
This Smart City Masterplan provides a framework to guide Rwandan cities and towns in their efforts to harness ICTs to provide a higher quality of life to their citizens, businesses and visitors. The document lays out a vision for cities of the future that embed technology and data across city functions to make them more efficient, competitive and innovative.
