Stronger Commitment to Digital Inclusion in Cities

Communicating the Case for a Stronger Commitment to Digital Inclusion in Cities: Smart Cities for All June 2016

The Smart Cities for All initiative has confirmed that most of today’s Smart Cities do not have a strong focus on ICT accessibility, resulting in a growing digital divide for persons with disabilities and older persons. Global experts currently see no clear link between ICT accessibility standards and Smart Cities programs worldwide. Just 18% of global experts

surveyed know of Smart Cities that use ICT accessibility standards. Moving forward, experts are clear in the belief that to create fully

inclusive Smart Cities, accessibility needs to be a required criterion in public procurements of ICT.
