Conference “Data-Driven Cities: Conference for the Urban Common Good”

Data-Driven Cities: Conference for the Urban Common Good

hosted by the Kenyan Ministry of Information, Communications and The Digital Economy (MICDE), the German Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV) and the German Federal Ministry for Housing, Urban Development and Building (BMWSB) this conference brings together stakeholders from city and national governments, academia, business and civil society from Germany as well as Kenya, Ghana, South Africa and other African nations to discuss the sharing and use of data for urban development.

Data-driven cities leverage technology and data to enhance urban life and sustainability. However, there are many challenges to using data successfully in the urban realm. Stakeholders from different sectors must collaborate to overcome data siloes and maximise impact. The objective of this conference is to achieve a common understanding of the benefits of data use for data-driven cities and share best practices.
