Webinar on Data-Driven Governance in Sustainable Cities: New models for public-private data sharing

19 October 2020
18:00 HKT

The Committee on Data (CODATA) invites to a webinar, which will introduce an ongoing data-sharing programme on sustainable mobility in Hong Kong.

Open Data has contributed a lot to analyse and support urban processes. In many cities, it has led to the collaboration between different groups using data to develop new services and better monitoring of urban developments. For many urban issues, we need more than open data. New forms of public-private data partnerships are necessary to analyse complex issues such as climate change mitigation, energy management, and transport.
