Do you want to know how SMART technologies can improve the transparency and accountability of municipal management and finances ?

The Uraía Platform is an initiative led in partnership between UN-Habitat and FMDV (Global Fund for Cities Development) to foster the exchange of experiences on municipal innovation. Every year, it focuses on a specific topic that is a priority on cities around the world. In 2016, the focus was on the impact of SMART technologies on municipal finances.
