Many people believe that digital public services should be shaped around people’s needs and be easily accessible. Within the current economic climate there is also a requirement for these services to be delivered effectively and efficiently.
Digital technology offers considerable potential for public sector organisations to better meet people’s needs and provide services accessible to all more efficiently.
It's not difficult, nor too expensive. Digital technologies can also help address the challenges of urbanisation. Smart cities promote environmental, social and economic sustainability by linking existing digital solutions in the energy, transport and ICT sectors.
