Global Cities survey 2011: Urban EcoMap – Encouraging smarter behaviour

Perhaps the most pressing challenge facing cities as urbanization accelerates is how to improve transportation, reduce energy consumption, minimize waste and maximize recycling. Urban EcoMap, an internet-based tool that enables cities around the world to provide smarter climate change information for their citizens, was developed by Cisco IBSG (the global strategic consulting arm of Cisco) and San Francisco’s Department of the Environment, and launched in 2008. Amsterdam set up an identical facility a year later.

Urban EcoMap provides local communities with information on their progress toward meeting greenhouse gas reduction goals in relation to transportation, energy, and waste. It also offers access to the most useful, locally available tools and resources for reducing their carbon footprint.
