Openness and engagement leads to transparency and encourages innovation in the community. Governments want to achieve the smart community goals and develop initiatives of transparency and engagement, but often need help in doing so. This session provided examples of how different stakeholder groups, including NGOs, start-ups, businesses and academia, are sharing data and engaging with local governments and communities to achieve development goals.
