Bus arrivals by app. Video analytics to keep communities safe. Behavioural science to discourage littering. Every city in Southeast Asia is different, and each requires some creative problem-solving.
In our second edition of GovInsider’s My Urban Challenge series, we share insights from Mayors and Smart City Officers of three fast-urbanising ASEAN cities: Jakarta, Mandalay and Penang. Pollution, inefficient waste management, inadequate public transport, and ageing infrastructure – just a handful of urban issues that they face.
- Smart City Officer of Jakarta: Indonesia’s capital is innovating to address traffic congestion and boost digital payments
- Smart City Officer of Mandalay: Using technology to leapfrog – but finding the right talent remains a challenge
- Mayor of Penang: What challenges does this tourism hub face?
This will be an ongoing series pulling together innovations from city leaders across ASEAN. Read the first edition here.
