Morgenstadt Global Smart Cities Initiative: Global approach - local solutions
As of: September 2020
Objective and activities
Smart and sustainable urban development is one of the main solutions for climate change adaptation and the efficient use of resources. However, the sectoral approaches to sustainable urban development have resulted in very different assessments of investment priorities and local needs. The Initiative uses the “City Labs” format to develop integrated strategies and roadmaps for sustainable urban development in the selected pilot cities. Based on an analysis of local development demands, replicable, viable solutions and strategies are generated and implemented, also using German technologies and solutions. Local partners are supported by the exchange of knowledge in the international innovation network “Morgenstadt: City Insights” and sustainably strengthened through targeted capacity building in the Indian, Mexican and Peruvian pilot cities.
