Smart cities in Latin America: Making technology work for society

Smart cities in Latin America: Making technology work for society

Governments have been talking about smart city programs since the creation of the internet, yet even in the world's most advanced cities the concept remains in the background, and residents may be unaware of the role that ICT plays in the smooth operation of services. Now though, we have M2M, social media and smartphones, meaning that the internet of things (IoT) is already a reality in some situations, even in Latin America. This report assesses how prominent the concept is in Latin American cities, and whether they are in a position to claim such a title.

Who’s doing what?
Even within a single city, particularly in the case of a mega-city, there can be multiple projects that cater to the smart city theme, almost in competition with each other.

A long time coming
As well as being highly beneficial for the population, smart city projects can pay dividends in political terms, so it’s in the authorities’ interest to take the time and make the effort to ensure they are done properly.

Setting priorities
Larger cities are under pressure to manage huge, disorganized populations, while smaller cities are lacking in terms of economy, educational institutions and ICT infrastructure. A dilemma?
