To strengthen the technical and institutional capacities of stakeholders in driving digital transformation in the urban domain, the “Toolkit on Digital Transformation for People-Oriented Cities and Communities” was developed by ITU and 12 other partners. This Toolkit draws a connection between the technological and interoperable solutions for urban operations while supporting the enhancement of the ability of authorities to envision and adopt cutting-edge technologies to make society more inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable.
This Toolkit includes insights on international standards and provides guidance, and use-cases on the application of emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), along with the latest reports on the ever-evolving topic of digital transformation. The Toolkit can universally benefit cities and communities, as well as regions and countries regardless of their level of smart or digital development, or their geographical or economic status. This AI for Good Webinar will be a unique opportunity to understand the benefits of leveraging this Toolkit across the smart city ecosystem while keeping digital transformation as the fulcrum.

(March 10, 2022) An example of a neighborhood association calling together to discuss the location of a Safe Rest Village in the Downtown neighborhood. Safe Rest Villages provide shelter and case management with wraparound behavioral and mental health services. Presently the sidewalks of Downtown and Old Town have grown crowded with people "living" in tents. SRVs are seen as a more humane alternative.
PDNA-sponsored Q&A session focused on the proposed Safe Rest Village Naito Parkway site.
Panel included Portland City Commissioner Dan Ryan and Multnomah County Commissioner Sharon Meieran. Questions were submitted by neighborhood residents in advance of this session.
