To carry out an inventory of actions and assess them by these different dimensions, cities have gathered information and data from across different municipality departments as well as external stakeholders. To find out more about the tools and approaches used by different cities, you can download a summary of the cities’ work at the bottom this this page.
Analysing stand-alone actions can allow for cross-sector opportunities to be identified, which bring together individual, sector-specific actions into an integrated initiative with the potential to deliver greater benefits to the city and its inhabitants.
Cross-sector can be considered in different ways. Some STEP UP cities have focussed on cross-sector opportunities in terms of bringing together actions that cross more than one of the smart cities sectors – transport, energy and ICT – whilst other cities have focussed on those that cross multiple Covenant of Mayors sectors – buildings, transport, public lighting, industry, local electricity production and local heat/cold production.
To read more about the cross-sector opportunities identified in each city, or to find more about the approaches taken by STEP UP cities, you can download a report summary here.
