Smart City.Za Bulletin - Issue 4
In this fourth edition of the SmartCity.za bulletin, we reflect on how our cities are progressing with their smart city programming, while trying to cement their smart city strategies and priority sectors for intervention. We specifically benefit from generous sharing by the City of Tshwane about their smart city journey, and their efforts to center citizen experience and service delivery through a consolidated, more coherent smart city program. We also receive important caution in our Global Perspective from Frank Vieveen from the City of Rotterdam that while cities certainly need smart strategies, these must not be treated as static orthodoxies. He emphasises the critical and importance of nurturing dynamic responsiveness, core competencies, and retaining municipal control over the city’s core knowledge and smart infrastructures.
