Tehran joins United 4 Smart Sustainable Cities

TEHRAN, Dec. 08 (MNA) – Iranian capital city is now a member of United 4 Smart Sustainable Cities (U4SSC) to improve its international interactions and cooperation under the framework of the 'Smart Tehran Program'.

U4SSC is a UN initiative coordinated by ITU, UNECE and UN-Habitat, and supported by CBD, ECLAC, FAO, UNDP, UNECA, UNESCO, UNEP, UNEP-FI, UNFCCC, UNIDO, UNOP, ​UNU-EGOV, UN-Women, and WMO to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 11: "Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable".​

​​U4SSC serves as the global platform to advocate for public policy and to encourage the use of ICTs to facilitate and ease the transition to smart sustainable cities.

The U4SSC developed a set of international key performance indicators (KPIs) for Smart Sustainable Cities (SSC) to establish the criteria to evaluate ICT´s contributions in making cities smarter and more sustainable, and to provide cities with the means for self-assessment in order to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs). 

It is worth noting that the 'Smart Tehran Program', planned by Tehran Municipality, determines Tehran's path to getting smart by defining the affiliated projects. The program was admired at the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona, in November 2019.
