Smart Cities catalyze the digital transformation of urban ecosystems to produce systemic environmental, financial, and social outcomes. Smart Cities are, by definition, focused on using emerging technologies and innovation to make cities more livable, and offer new services and economic opportunities.

In 2022, Asia Pacific Cities will be focused on digitally enabled innovations that will spur socioeconomic activities and bring about a return of investments to transform the 'live, learn, work, and play' dynamics of local communities and urbanized hubs. With each digital investment, privacy and security management are becoming a forefront consideration as city governments seek to safeguard and protect the interests of their investors and constituents.

To recognize outstanding Smart Cities projects, IDC is launching its 8th Smart City Asia Pacific Awards (SCAPA). These 2022 awards will recognize the progress Asia Pacific municipalities have made and also provide a forum for sharing the best practices to help accelerate Smart City development in the region.
