This white paper explains what is required to move cities to greater smartness: the what, who and how of smart city development. It considers risk management and resilience to environmental
shocks in the context of environmental concerns. It calls for a wide collaboration between many stakeholders, including other international standardization bodies to ultimately lead to integrated, cost-efficient, and sustainable solutions.
Orchestrating infrastructure for sustainable Smart Cities is the sixth in a series of white papers whose purpose is to ensure that the IEC can contribute to solving global challenges through its International Standards and Conformity Assessment services. The development of this white paper was led by the IEC MSB (Market Strategy Board) project team on Smart Cities in cooperation with CEPS (Centre for European Policy Studies). The MSB brings together the CTOs of leading international organizations.
