(Pre-Published) Key performance indicators for smart sustainable cities to assess the achievement of sustainable development goals
|Publication Date:||1 March 2022|
This Recommendation outlines the key performance indicators (KPIs) for SSCs and establishes criteria to evaluate ICT's contributions in making cities smarter and more sustainable and provide cities with the means for self-assessment in order to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs). Evaluating these indicators can help cities as well as their stakeholders understand to what extent they may be perceived as achieving their smart and sustainable goals. This Recommendation is expected to drive corporations and partnerships at all levels in unlocking the full potential of cities' smart strategies, developing transformative solutions to tackle smart sustainable cities challenges and achieving the SDGs. The KPIs are based on key dimensions of a city: Economics, Environment, and Society and Culture
This Recommendation is aimed at cities and related administrations, but can be utilized by a variety of stakeholders such as public and private partners and academia to enable strategy development, information sharing, understand the city's progress, and assessing the SSC's development.
The intention of identifying the KPIs is to establish a means to evaluate cities' performances and their progress towards becoming smarter and more sustainable and to provide the cities with the means for self-assessments. Cities are encouraged to periodically check their performances against the recommended indicators listed in this Recommendation in order to improve their performance. These KPIs are not intended to be used for the cross evaluation of cities with respect to their performance and progress becoming smarter and more sustainable.
