Let’s build resilient urban centres with data-driven governance
Data is the backbone of a resilient urban centre. Through the monitoring of urban services, data can help governments in the early detection of a crisis, and in addressing urban issues more efficiently. Data-driven governance is evidently a powerful enabler in mainstreaming urban resilience, but with great power comes greater responsibility to ensure good governance. Therefore, the co-operation between both must be instituted by building a secure, inclusive, and robust data ecosystem.
