Data initiative launched for Indian cities

INDIA

In a bid to build high calibre data in Indian cities, the World Council on City Data (WCCD) has launched the joint City Data for India Initiative with Tata Trusts in Mumbai.

The goal of the initiative is to empower city leaders, decision-makers and citizens from cities across India to make datainformed decisions to improve planning, infrastructure investment and operational performance management using ISO standardised, comparable city data.

“Our first, three WCCD ISO 37120 certified cities in India [Pune, Sarat and Jamshedpur] have quickly become outstanding exemplars of the lessons learned throughout the WCCD network,” said Dr Patricia McCarney, President and CEO, WCCD. “With the assistance of our partners at Tata Trusts–supported by PwC–this initiative has unequivocally proven that cities have the potential to drive a culture of data that will inform decisions, investments and transparent governance.”
