Brief Description

The purpose of this partner group is to create a resource base on the state of Smart City knowledge and practice in Africa and the Global South that is useful to city practitioners and urban scholars. The practice of smart cities is still quite new in Africa, with various stakeholders still trying to determine what models, frameworks, approaches, and tools are appropriate in the African public sector context. This will contribute to the knowledge management of the space, particularly to provide continuity and support a credible, knowledge-based, local-centric view of how cities and their partners could best engage in pursuing their smart city agendas.

This project is supported by: South African Cities Network, Wits School of Governance’s Tayarisha African Centre of Excellence in Digital Governance, and UNU-EGOV (the United Nations University Operating Unit on Policy-Driven Electronic Governance) under the project "INOV.EGOV-Digital Governance Innovation for Inclusive, Resilient and Sustainable Societies / NORTE-01-0145-FEDER-000087", supported by Norte Portugal Regional Operational Programme (NORTE 2020), under the PORTUGAL 2020 Partnership Agreement, through the European Regional Development Fund (EFDR).
