Greetings from "International Geneva" - my current focus is on scalable social and solidarity/local economy and nature based solutions at the food/water-waste/energy nexus. the main challenge is not finance or technology - it is the need for truly inclusive 21st century fit approaches and new business models that are measured not by ESG but by contribution to "acceleration, localisation, and transformation".

Being within the SmartCity space as a Planner, I see a general absence of Leadership from Planners in the movements, No Master Plans for organizing the projects, technology, infrastructure to a future point of benefits to all stakeholders in Cities/Region (Ajay Nair, contact@Nexis.Space)

Could we know how many participants are on the call? and from which parts of the world? Beris
Okan Geray

I agree Jacquie, definitely we need to understand how cities are adopting AI principles
Dr Jacqui Taylor
02:43:13
@Ajay As part of my work as the world’s first Smart City Tsar with governments across the world I have a community of planners who I work with. I have written a book Shaping Future Places which showcases the evidence collected and suggested areas of focus to incorporate planning leadership. If you contact me at Jacqui.taylor@flyingbinary.com I will send you a complementary copy of my book.
Ajay Nair
02:46:53
Thank you Dr. Jacqui.. I will write in.
Dr Jacqui Taylor
02:47:17
@okan I have 10 procurement principles I have created from my work as Smart City Tsar which have been used to underpin the EU AI Act which I would be happy to contribute to your work. Perhaps we can discuss when I am in Dubai in January?

Secure data (IoT) can provide transparency for financing and monitor service deliveries in countries with low access to reasonable priced funds (high interest rates). Unfortunately most projects are not followed properly and in real-time. Most focus is put on reports and consultants. Unfortunately that's proved to be a dead end.
Beris GWYNNE
03:11:08
@Fredrik Do you have any suggestions re last three sentences: what kinds of mechanisms/ metrics/third party monitoring might incentivise a shift to sustainable economy business model to replace the "utilitarian" old economy/aid agendas determined by existing funders/financiers public and private?
GIfty Amoah (ITU)

@panellists: we would like to kindly remind you all to please take a look at the Q&A function and kindly provide answers to the questions . Please note there can be multiple answers to a single question. You just need to click on the "Type Answer" button to provide your responses.
Fredrik Agerhem
03:23:22
@Beris We are monitoring electricity deliveries (solar) from both small and larger installations - that data is accessible for the financier in real time. Same with buildings where we are creating transparency/verification of investments into "green" technologies for energy efficiency. Thereby verification for the green financing from example a green bond. All in real-time. And of course the asset manager of solar system or building gets much more data for operation and health of system.
Fredrik Agerhem
03:26:54
@Beris We need to open up for solutions that work for the consumer/financier - focus on price/performance. Monitoring and transparency creates trust from people. Even informal societies are willing to pay as long as they get services. We tend to underestimate the willingness and ability to pay in informal societies. But of course nobody wants to pay for non-service

According to the latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), if it makes happen limiting range of average global warming to 1.5℃ compared with temperature before industrialization and reducing the possibility of predictable catastrophe due to climate change, we should take action on halving volume of CO2 emission by around 2030 and the percentage of renewable energy should be within 70%~85% by around mid-century.With promises reaching Net Zero from different countries with different time point before 2060, we should develop a Methodology to assess how much GHG emissions are emitted from Smart Cities. After that, it would be beneficial making a comparison between different Smart Cities in different regions and measuring effect of energy-saving and GHG-emission-reduction technologies.In this regard, this contribution proposed a new work item proposal on “Methodology for Measurement of GHG Emissions in Smart Cities”. The aim of this work item is to develop a set of methods on how to
