UN-Habitat recently launched a series of people-centred smart cities playbooks. They are intended to serve as practical guides for cities, regions and other organisations wanting to take a people-centred approach to smart city development. These are the first three in a series, with additional playbooks planned for the first half of 2022.
The playbooks are organised around five key pillars of people-centred smart cities, as outlined in the overarching framework Centering People in Smart Cities: A playbook for regional and local governments - Community, Digital Equity, Infrastructure, Security & Capacity. They are intended as practical guides for cities, regions and other organizations that want to take a people-centered approach to smart city development. The playbooks were developed based on a survey and interviews with a regionally representative sample of cities.
