CitiCAP Expert Journal 4: Get an update on what has been happening in the last 6 months in Lahti

CitiCAP Expert Journal 4
Short description
In his 4th journal of CitiCAP, UIA expert Philip Turner describes his take on the project over the last 6 months, which included the testing and user feedback of the Personal Carbon Trading (PCT) scheme that was officially launched, the development of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) and the cycle highway.

Phillip describes in detail how the project managed to win the first award of the Gitex 2019 Smart City series (biggest technology exhibition in the Middle-East). In Philip’s words, the next challenge will be to scale up the PCT and make significant progress on the cycle superhighway, which has experienced some delays.  According to Phillip, a positive signal is that more businesses are engaging in the PCT which will help to reach out to even more citizens.

Finally, Philip looks into the challenges faced by CitiCAP; although progress is very good overall, attention is needed in some of the challenges that cut across all UIA projects: Integrated cross-departmental working, monitoring and evaluation, and financial sustainability. Overall, performance can be seen to be improved when compared to previous Journals! Read through to find out why!
