Moscow appointed status of smart sustainable city
Moscow received a certificate of successful implementation of international key performance indicators (KPIs) for smart sustainable cities. The award took place in Valencia as part of the Green Standards Week.
The concept of “smart sustainable city” was enshrined in 2015. It is an innovative city that uses information and communication technologies (ICT) and other means to improve the quality of life, the efficient functioning of the city, services and competitiveness, meeting the needs of present and future generations. The received certificate officially confirmed that Moscow successfully passed the assessment and was included in the number of such cities.
“Since 2010, Moscow has been implementing a large-scale program for creating a smart city. During this time, the capital has made significant progress in developing a modern IT infrastructure, in introducing advanced technologies and services for citizens and businesses. The city is traditionally one of the most technologically advanced cities in the world, and the U4SSC certificate once again confirms the status of Moscow as a smart city. This is another recognition by international experts. The main goal of this great work is to make life more comfortable for citizens in the capital every year, ”said the Minister of the Government of Moscow, the head of the Information Technology Department, Eduard Lysenko, mos.ru portal reports.
The indicators for the assessment were developed on the initiative of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe as part of the project “Joining forces to build smart sustainable cities” (U4SSC).
Moscow provided ITU with 76 indicators to participate in the study. Experts studied the experience of the capital in the development of the economy, ecology, social sphere and culture. The successful implementation of international KPIs has been facilitated by the development of modern technologies.
In the text of the study, experts emphasize that the capital is actively developing and using information technology to accelerate the economic growth of the city and create a culture of innovation.
For example, on the portal mos.ru Muscovites in electronic form are available for more than 330 government services. Without leaving home, citizens can pay bills for housing and communal services, pass meter readings, view grades of a child at school, or make an appointment with a doctor.
