About the book
To address the major urban challenges, UNECE and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) developed, jointly with 15 other UN bodies and other partners, the Key Performance Indicators for Smart Sustainable Cities. This is a set of 91 indicators, which are an important tool to assess the performance of cities in the areas of environment, economy, social and cultural development, and support the achievement of the SDGs at the local level. By using these indicators, UNECE develops Smart Sustainable City Profiles with concrete recommendations for action, including priorities for investments into city development. Goris was selected as the first pilot city for this project.
