Results from collaborative data initiatives to drive innovation in cities



This publication aims to contribute to the debate on data and cities by highlighting 11 innovative data initiatives that represent diversity in implementing organisation, contexts, policy sectors and approaches for data collection and use. It highlights common characteristics and challenges that we hope will inspire other local actors to explore new ways of using data and information to get to know and transform our cities.

It documents results from the Cities Alliance Innovation Programme Call for Proposals on the theme Know Your City!  The Innovation Programme is a Cities Alliance global funding instrument to identify and support innovative partnerships and approaches in cities of all sizes around the world. It enables Cities Alliance to create impact for catalysing change where it matters most; our small grants directly reach and benefit communities at the neighbourhood level.

By providing seed funding as well as access to networking and learning, Cities Alliance empowers its grantees to transform their communities and cities, catalysing the innovative potential within those spaces.
