City Framework


City can be considered as a complex living organism with multiple forms and contents. It is driven by three key pillars of sustainable development namely economics, environment and social. City governance is equally important in efficiently manage city functions and measuring city performance. With its complexities involving multiple content and stakeholders, a city needs a systemised framework as a tool to align, coordinate and synergised initiatives by various stakeholders for best impact to the city communities.
With a framework, cities are able to assess its needs and areas to prioritise, as well as have visibility on efforts carried out to date and new areas to embark into in order to improve cities attractiveness and competitiveness. A city developmental masterplan can be subsequently established, guided by the framework and focus areas for specific cities. The framework also guides cities to addres new areas  to support community needs such as , mobility, green tourism, bio-degradables, disaster management, open data policy, green governance, etc.
City also produces big data which can be captured, integrated and through analytics, its potentials can be unlocked. The integration of city systems through info-structure will flourish the growth of cities through innovation, citizen centric solutions, industry investments and most importantly, significant reduction in Green House Gas (GHG) emissions .
The success of cities in navigating into sustainable future lies in its leadership, being community centric and intense partnership with the private sector to support the delivery of its city masterplans.
