Bloomberg Associates’ Digital City Tools report highlights the innovative ways city governments around the world are using technology to overcome challenges and drive progress. It is part of an information exchange among twenty-two global cities about the digital technologies they use, how they are implementing them and their impact. By connecting cities and sharing information, Bloomberg Associates is working toward the goal of facilitating peer-to-peer learning and fostering collaboration.
Bloomberg Associates interviewed 22 cities across the world to understand the digital tools cities are using, identify roles and responsibilities of digital municipal leaders, and share information among participating cities to facilitate peer-to-peer learning and foster collaboration.
