Climate-neutral & smart city guidance package – a summary

The summary aims to help fast-tracking financially viable smart climate-neutral urban projects in an integrated and inclusive way. It provides a roadmap for this purpose, which summarises the different stages of developing a coherent urban development process and the different steps of each stage providing checklists. It also advises on planning various accelerating actions that can help you to achieve more impact locally through replication and scaling up of the smart climate-neutral city solutions later. It is based on the original self-help tool Smart City Guidance Package (SCGP) and elaborates the financial aspects of the different stages and steps.

This summary is primarily meant for city administrations, local politicians (Mayors, Vice-Mayors, Councillors and their staff), directors of unit, smart city project managers and other local authorities, including public transport, housing, utilities or waste management. However, it can also be very useful to all partners in the cities’ ecosystem, such as businesses, financial institutions and civil society, including housing associations, citizens and local companies, and NGOs.
