Smart City Asia/Pacific Awards 2021: Promoting the Best Practices of Local and Regional Governments
This IDC Perspective showcases 70 selected Smart City projects as part of the Smart City Asia/Pacific Awards (SCAPA) 2021. These projects are categorized into 14 functional domains. They help recognize the progress that Asia/Pacific cities and municipalities have made and provide a forum for sharing best practices to help accelerate Smart City development in the region.
"IDC's seventh year of facilitating the SCAPA awards has brought about new milestones. Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we received hundreds of public nominations and saw a six-figure count in unique public votes. These circumstances reinforced our continued assessment that the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated public sector digitalization initiatives. In Asia/Pacific, we noted that local public sector agencies drove forth increased social development and outreach touch points; the administrative transformations of cities; the reimagining of the use of residential, commercial, industrial, and public spaces; the improved automation and resilience of critical infrastructure services; and the aiding of local enterprises to transition to new digital economy norms," says Gerald Wang, head of public sector, IDC Asia/Pacific..
