Reimagine Smart City_IDS Seminar 1 of 2023_Poster in English

Smart city policy frameworks were put under the policy analysis microscope with the guide of smart economy, smart environment, smart governance, smart living, smart mobility, and smart people domains to generate insights into urban planning issues and their associated priorities and goals. With respect to each of these six domains, the following most predominant and challenging planning issues were identified: economic growth, climate change, stakeholder engagement, livability, transport management, and digital inclusion. Prospective studies, hence, will also need to concentrate on identifying the impact of local government smart city policies, outlined in their policy documents. This will help in understanding the success and failure factors in translating smart city policies into desired smart city outcomes and will support local governments in forming a consolidated view on how smart city policies can be utilized for tackling urban challenges more effectively.

To asnwer our curiosity about how to make smart city development policy doable and effective and make the smart city a reality, in this online event you will have an opportunity to discuss these following aspects of the smart city with our distinguished speakers:

- Smart City Policy Framework as a Local Governance's Commitment

- Smart Economy and How to Promote Fair Competitiveness

- Thailand City Innovation Index for city development

- Smart Government in local governance and decentralization context

- Smart City as policy innovation in the constitutional context
