4 2 3 A message from the Mayor of Barcelona WELCOME TO BARCELONA a note from the world bank group WELCOME TO citisense Dear partners, As Mayor of Barcelona, it is a pleasure to welcome you to our city on the occasion of the World Bank CitiSense 2013 Conference. Barcelona is a city of culture, knowledge, creativity and innovation. As the Mobile World Capital and a Smart City of reference around the world, we are becoming an important start-up and technological hub in the south of Europe and the Mediterranean. This is an on-going process that we are building with the collaboration of public institutions, private companies and international organizations, like the World Bank, which help us to lead a global reference model for sustainable urban development and the improvement of people s wellbeing and quality of life. I very much hope that your stay in Barcelona allows you to get to know better all the attractions that have turned our city into one of the most visited in the world: the Gothic quarter and the beautiful buildings of Modernism, the museums and the festivals, and a popular and creative gastronomy. I wish you a very fruitful congress and hope that you also enjoy your stay in Barcelona. Xavier Trias Mayor of Barcelona On behalf of the World Bank Group, it s my pleasure to welcome you to the CitiSense conference. Cities are where development challenges and solutions meet. 6.2 billion people or two thirds of the world s population will be living in cities by Cities hold the key to tackling climate change. They account for about two-thirds of the world s energy consumption and about 70 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. More and more people and assets in cities will be exposed to the forces of nature, with potentially devastating consequences. Global economic costs from flooding in cities could increase to up to $1 trillion a year. Our increasingly urban world requires the latest thinking, innovative approaches, and ongoing collaboration. At this conference, together with our partners, we ve designed sessions to inspire new ideas and present concrete actions to make cities hubs of innovation and prosperity which create opportunities for a better life while fighting climate change. The World Bank Group is actively working with cities to help them manage the challenges of rapid urbanization and climate change. The Low-Carbon Livable Cities (LC2) Initiative, launched in September by President Jim Yong Kim, offers cities a suite of tailored tools and activities ranging from greenhouse gas inventories and assessments to low-carbon investment planning and financing solutions. As part of our efforts to help cities set themselves on a low-carbon

5 4 5 development path, at CitiSense we will announce the City Energy Efficiency Transformation Initiative, which will help cities integrate energy efficiency into their strategic planning, and find new opportunities to save money, improve services, and reduce emissions. VENUE INFORMATION CitiSense will also focus on cities as co-creation platforms, or enabling ecosystems that foster better conditions for catalyzing innovation, experimenting with urban technologies, and delivering public services collaboratively. N south entrance 1.5 CONVENTION CENTER 1 CC1 CitiSense is designed with you, and your cities needs, in mind. You are encouraged to interact with speakers, with representatives of the World Bank and our partners, and, most importantly, with each other to forge meaningful engagements moving forward. Thank you for joining us in Barcelona. I hope that this marks the beginning of a new stage in our collaboration, as we work together to build smarter and more sustainable cities.

Lars Ostenfeld Riemann will outline some of the recent innovations in this field. HENRY CHESBROUGH, Author and Professor, ESADE Business School Open innovation is becoming the standard framework for understanding and mobilizing innovation in companies. However, open innovation left companies and is driving change also in cities and in general the public sector. Not only the typical innovators but also citizens are the protagonists of this change.

24 world bank project spotlights co-creating cities an open innovation approach to tackle urban challenges ceeti city energy efficiency transformation initiative LC2 low-carbon livable cities initiative trace tool for rapid assessment of city energy code for resilience community-driven innovation for disaster resilience co-creating cities An Open Innovation Approach to Tackle the Urbanization Challenge For the first time in history more than half of the world s population lives in cities. Over 90 percent of urban growth takes place in the developing world, adding an estimated 70 million new residents to urban areas each year. Demand for services in urban areas is therefore increasing exponentially, which is posing a grave challenge for city governments. Cities face a conundrum of growing demand for more and better services with fewer resources. The solution to this conundrum comes in part through technology. Cities are turning to technology to improve the management and provision of city services. However, technology by itself is not a panacea for city problems. Open innovation approaches can help apply, enhance and compliment the impact of technologies t by engaging citizens the users of city services--to be an active part of the solutions to these problems, to help improve city services, and become change agents in their own communities. Citizens are essential to manage city neighborhoods: they have a better understanding of their communities needs, and aspire to have an active say in the solutions to the problems that directly affect them in their daily lives. This type of citizen engagement can be achieved with cost-efficient tools: using readily available technologies, such as mobile phones, together with open source solutions. By combining the citizens will and energy with cost-effective technologies, city governments can provide more and better services while incurring less cost. The World Bank ICT Sector Practice is proposing a framework to help cities in emerging economies implement this this type of open innovation approach. The Co-Creation for Cities framework looks at the city as an ecosystem, whereby city government, private sector, universities and citizens collaborate to develop and implement better and more efficient city services. This framework follows a five step process:

25 44 45 IDEATION City services can be improved by using simple open source technology solutions. However, these solutions need to be tailored to the specific city problems and targeted users, and made available to city officials in the form of a public good. Most local government officials do not have the time or the resources to review and access these open source solutions. To solve these problems and introduce cost-effective technology tools at city-level, the World Bank team works closely with city officials to ideate solutions that would have a tangible and real impact for the city, through interactive and dynamic workshops. This ideation process takes a practical approach through hands-on group iteration exercises and exposes city officials to relevant examples from other cities that can be adapted to achieve real impact in their cities. The outcome of this process is a number of key technology solutions that solve real problems and enhance existing city service delivery; and increased capacity and know-how for city officials to replicate this process for other city service needs. ROADMAP The use of technology solutions can improve individual city services, but a comprehensive utilization of these tools will require the use of basic platforms and infrastructure to limit silos and allow for data sharing and common interfaces. Such support infrastructure can be a major investment for the city. With the development of an organic roadmap that incorporates all city service needs, required investment can be sequenced and bring maximum results. To develop this organic roadmap, the World Bank works with city officials to support them in setting a future aspirational goal of technology implementation in city management and service delivery. To do this foresight exercise, the Bank will first partner with cities where the state of technology development is fairly advanced. Once the future goal is established and the appropriate technology scenario is developed for city management and services, the World Bank together with city officials creates the roadmap. The roadmap will provide a plan to evolve city infrastructure and platforms (incorporating open data requirements for co-creation of solutions), which will adapt investments to city needs and budget constraints. This road map provides a reference guide that can be adapted as the city evolves in the application of an increasing number of technology solutions. CO-CREATION Technology tools can help improve city services by directly engaging citizens and other city stakeholders to be part of the solution, and, with the Internet of things and citizens as sensors, provide close to real time data for more informed decision making. Beyond city governments and citizens, such technology tools and service delivery solutions will be open to all city stakeholders that show interest and commitment in solving the city s problems. Through open innovation competitions, such as hackathons or app challenges, the city can bring together unusual partners city government, universities, civil society and community of local developers--to co-create solutions, leveraging technology tools, and together solve challenges their cities face. The World Bank works with the city government and stakeholders to design such an open innovation process, adapted to the local circumstances to harness the greatest impact. This process aims to spark the creation of a community of innovation to solve city-level problems. To build on the momentum that the co-creation process generates, there URBAN INNOVATION LAB is a need for a space, an Urban Innovation Lab, that facilitates the ongoing interaction between all stakeholders; a space where new ideas and solutions can be tested in a fail-safe environment. The Urban Innovation Lab serves as an anchor of open innovation for city stakeholders, led by the city government. This Lab can host the rapid prototyping process, through a co-working space, and offer practical training and advisory based on living lab and urban lab methodologies. The Lab would sustain dynamic open innovation between all city stakeholders and serve as a test bed for local innovation. The World Bank partners with experts from leading urban and living labs to tailor the lab design to the local urban environment and help create a local community of innovation for the benefit of the city s ecosystem.

26 46 47 NETWORKS ceeti city energy efficiency transformation initiative Finally, cities that have gone through the previous 4 steps, can create a network to share, use and reuse applications and practices. Through such a network they can maximize the reach and value of the solutions they develop by sharing them with their peers, as well as learn from and build on experiences for other cities. Such networks could also connect with already existing networks in Europe (for example, the European Network of Living Labs or the Open Cities initiative) and in the US. The World Bank can support cities to join such international city networks that apply open innovation and co-creation approaches. The ultimate goal of this activity is to create a global network for open innovation at city-level where all city ecosystems can benefit from each other s inventions and developments.

The World Bank s new City Energy Efficiency Transformation Initiative (CEETI) offers city governments the support with which to answer these critical questions. It is a joint initiative by three World Bank units the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), the World Bank Institute (WBI), and the Information and Communication Technologies Unit (ICT), in partnership with the Global Buildings Performance Network (GBPN) and the Collaborative Labeling and Appliance Standards Program (CLASP). CEETI helps urban leaders integrate energy efficiency into the core of city planning through programs to build their capacity, map out citywide efficiency strategies, and facilitate access to development financing. The three-year initiative will assist selected cities throughout the entire process from assessing their energy efficiency potential to developing bankable energy efficiency projects or investment programs to designing targeted interventions in areas such as public lighting, buildings, water utilities, power and district heating, and urban transport. When implemented, these energy efficiency measures can help improve public services and lower municipal energy bills, as well as contribute to job creation, economic growth and the city s competi-tiveness, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. CEETI builds on experience gained from implementation of the Tool for

27 48 49 Rapid Assessment of City Energy (TRACE), which was created by ESMAP to measure energy efficiency across a range of municipal sectors and pinpoint actions that can improve energy use and save cities money. Since its creation, TRACE has been deployed in more than 25 major cities around the world, including Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Skopje (Macedonia), Colombo (Sri Lanka), Surabaya (Indonesia), and Nairobi (Kenya). It also builds on the lessons of extensive work by the World Bank s regional units, particularly in the East Asia and Pacific region through the Sustainable Urban Energy and Emissions Planning (SUEEP) Program in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and in the Latin America and the Caribbean region. Mayors are pragmatists, not partisans; innovators, not ideologues. We are responsible for delivering results, not debating politics. And as the world becomes increasingly more urban, the importance of bold local action particularly on climate change will continue to grow. - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg CEETI will work with cities where there is a high potential for the development of urban energy efficiency programs, and a commitment from authorities to support such programs. The first year of the program will support the integration of energy efficiency planning into decision-making, building the capacity of urban planners, promoting learning and exchanges between cities, and facilitating partnerships with potential financiers. This will include capacity building over a period of about 6 months, including hands-on training for city officials on how to assess energy efficiency opportunities in the public sector, create energy efficiency plans, and finance and implement programs. The second and third years of the program will consist of dedicated technical assistance supporting cities to develop specific energy efficiency plans and investment programs, pre-feasibility studies as well as policies and institutions. This phase will support the implementation of transformational energy efficiency programs. World Bank Group Support to Cities With its focus on urban energy efficiency, CEETI is a key component of the World Bank Group s approach to cities as engines of growth and sustainable, low-carbon development. CEETI will integrate energy efficiency into city planning and develop pipelines of bankable energy efficiency projects, build capacity, and facilitate access to development financing. CEETI works closely alongside the recently-announced World Bank Low-Carbon and Livable Cities (LC2) initiative, which supports cities in their climate-smart development through activities aimed at planning (e.g., community scale emissions inventories; design of climate action plans and associated city-level capital investment plans) and finance (e.g., city-focused credit-worthiness training program and development of innovative financing solutions). The case of Rio de Janeiro exemplifies how these two initiatives work together. Based on the outcome of the TRACE study in Rio supported by ESMAP, the City of Rio has identified two potential investments in energy efficiency: efficient public street lighting using LEDs (Light Emitting Diode) and energy efficiency retrofits in municipal buildings (schools and hospitals). ESMAP then provided technical and financial assistance with the Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF) for a detailed feasibility study that will provide implementation and financing options for these two projects. Similarly, cities participating in CEETI could benefit from creditworthiness training and access financing through LC2. CEETI will also cooperate with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the World Bank s private sector arm, to provide expertise in private buildings. Working together, these initiatives enable the World Bank Group to deliver a comprehensive package of assistance best suited to each city s priorities, capacities, and set of circumstances.

28 50 51 CEETI will also include: An Energy Efficiency Innovation Competition that will provide incentives to entrepreneurs and ICT businesses/teams to develop solutions to city level energy efficiency challenges. Technology developers with experience working on urban planning and energy efficiency in developing country cities will be invited to develop applications or other ICT solutions that address key energy efficiency challenges that cities face. Dedicated Expert Technical Assistance for cities that demonstrate an interest in implementing energy efficiency programs. A World Bank team will work hand-in-hand with the city to overcome energy efficiency barriers to help ensure successful implementation and delivery of energy efficient urban services. For more information on the City Energy Efficiency Transformation Initiative, please contact ESMAP at lc2 low-carbon livable cities (lc2) initiative The World Bank Group s LOW-CARBON LIVABLE CITIES (LC2) INITIATIVE supports the cities of the developing world in their efforts to set themselves on a low-carbon and resilient development path. Leveraging the expertise of its many partners, the World Bank Group has designed a series of planning and financing tools that can be tailored to cities needs and help them tap their full emissions reduction potential. Applying a climate lens to cities development plans means that energy savings resulting in lower carbon emissions will free up budget for other sustainable investments, resilient infrastructure will withstand the forces of nature, and citizens will have cleaner air to breathe. By reaching 300 of the largest developing country cities, the Initiative has the potential to improve the lives of over 700 million people in the cities it will help, and billions globally as emissions are reduced. PLANNING: When it comes to planning, the first step is to understand the problem at hand. A recent analysis by World Bank staff found that only about 20 percent of the world s 150 largest cities have even the basic analytics needed for low-carbon planning. A critical part of the Initiative is to build that evidence base by helping cities quantify greenhouse gas emissions associated with economic activity and consumption. City-level greenhouse gas inventories will provide municipal governments with a snapshot of their emissions profile and enable them to identify the mix of policies and investments that will help them achieve their full emissions

29 52 53 reduction potential. FINANCING: Smart planning is only one part of the solution. As cities grow, municipal governments need to broaden and deepen sources of financing, moving beyond traditional public funding to access much larger private pools of savings, particularly in domestic capital markets. The first step to get finance flowing is to make municipalities more attractive to private investors and help them access markets. The initiative offers a unique City Creditworthiness Training Program to help municipal governments set themselves on the path to access local capital markets directly. However, achieving creditworthiness is a long-term process. To address short term financing needs, the Initiative will also leverage the World Bank Group s expertise to develop innovative financing solutions enabling municipalities to access financing at better terms. #LC2 trace tool for rapid assessment of city energy Cities face the difficult challenge of maintaining economic competitiveness, and improving and expanding municipal services in the face of limited budgets. Energy efficiency (EE) can help cities relieve some of the budgetary pressure by reducing energy costs, thus freeing resources for municipal services. EE can also help improve the quality of services, such as improved lighting, transport, and building maintenance. The Tool for Rapid Assessment of City Energy (TRACE)is a decision-support system designed to help cities quickly identify and harness EE opportunities. It targets underperforming sectors, evaluates improvement and costsaving potential, and helps prioritize actions for EE interventions.trace focuses on the municipal sectors with the highest energy use: passenger transport, municipal buildings, water and wastewater, public lighting, power and heat, and solid waste. TRACE was developed by the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), a global technical assistance program administered by the World Bank, and was designed to involve city decision-makers in the deployment process. TRACE starts by collecting benchmark data, continues with a two-week on-location assessment with technical experts and decision-makers, and concludes with a final report to city authorities with specific recommendations on EE opportunities tailored to the city s needs. TRACE MODULES TRACE consists of three modules: energy benchmarking, which compares the target city with peer cities globally; sector prioritization, which ranks sectors according to their EE potential; and intervention selection, which functions as a playbook of global best EE practices that the city can consult for actual implementation design.

30 ENERGY BENCHMARKING This module has a database of 28 key performance indicators collected from 93 cities around the world. Examples include citywide indicators (such as energy consumption per unit of the city s GDP) and sector-specific variables (such as electricity consumption per light pole). City authorities can compare their city s performance against peer cities on any of the key performance indicators. They can also choose the comparison cities based on population size, climate conditions, human development index, and any other criteria. 2. SECTOR PRIORITIZATION This module uses three functions potential for improvement, sector energy spending, and city authority control to prioritize sectors. The potential for improvement indicates the scope of EE improvement that the city may realize if it were to match the average of better-performing comparator cities. The sector energy spending captures the total amount of money that the city spends in the sector on energy. The city authority control allows the user to specify the degree of influence the city authority has in the sector. 3. INTERVENTION SELECTION TRACE contains a set of 60 EE interventions that combines a blend of both high-level strategic programs and specific activities that the city can pursue. These recommendations are supported by a database of 191 global case studies that link to additional resources and software tools that can help the city implement EE measures. Each recommendation is rated on three attributes: (i) energy savings potential, (ii) initial implementation cost, and (iii) speed of implementation. These are used to help the city prioritize activities in an action plan. In order to synthesize recommendations appropriate for a city, TRACE enables the user to match city capability to the capabilities required to implement each recommendation. City officials can then select a set of recommendations deemed socially and economically viable. A detailed analysis is available for each recommendation to help users quantify the potential energy savings for each EE action. TRACE IN ACTION As of June 2013, TRACE has been deployed in 25 cities in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America. Getting Started with TRACE TRACE can be downloaded from esmap.org/trace. ESMAP provides training to cities or implementing agencies that are planning to use TRACE. The training can be conducted in person or via video link. A TRACE e-learning course was created in partnership with the World Bank Institute. The course is available at course/trace-how-use-tool-rapidassessment-city-energy. The course is available for free with online registration. Additionally, ESMAP offers facilitated online courses for free to those planning to use TRACE. These are offered at a specified time to users around the world. In Turkey, TRACE helped define the Sustainable Cities pillar in the World Bank s Country Partnership Strategy for Turkey for Since then, the TRACE findings have informed the World Bank s US$300 million programmatic lending to cities in Turkey. In Brazil, TRACE was implemented in Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte. In the latter, the findings have been incorporated in the city s strategy and the traffic optimization recommendation has been implemented. In Rio de Janeiro, the World Bank s Presidential Cities Task Force is preparing specific investments in the public lighting and buildings sectors, which were identified by TRACE as having the largest EE potential. In Vietnam, the World Bank used TRACE to create city-level case studies, the results of which were subsequently used to create Sustainable Urban Energy Program Guidelines for cities across the East Asia and Pacific region.

31 56 57 In Romania, a World Bank team is deploying TRACE in seven fast-growing cities as part of the Romania Regional Development Program funded by the European Union. TRACE is being used to identify the specific investments to be funded under the program. code for resilience community-driven innovation for disaster resilience In Kenya, TRACE is being used to identify EE investments and prepare Nairobi s EE action plan. Natural disasters affected the lives of over 2 billion people in the first decade of this century alone. Together these disasters set the global economy back nearly USD$1 trillion in damage to lives, infrastructure, and livelihoods. At a time when the incidence of reported natural disasters is rising steadily, how can we increase resilience to natural disasters? Code for Resilience, a project of the World Bank s Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), is partnering local technologists with global experts in disaster risk management to envision new apps, platforms and tools that enhance community resilience to natural disasters. The project, generously supported by the Government of Japan, is organized into three phases: The collection of locally-relevant and ICT-actionable disaster risk management problem statements (October-January); One- to two-day hack-a-thons held in select cities around the globe that team technologists up to create hacks that aim to solve these problem statements (February); and An online contest that encourages technologists to continue developing, testing and refining their products (March-June). Grand prize winners of the Code for Resilience online contest will be announced at the World Bank s Understanding Risk conference in London, England in July 2014.

32 58 59 The Code for Resilience follows two preceding World Bank strategic hackathons in the water and sanitation sectors that together have organized events in over 50 cities with more than 1,000 developers leading to dozens of new technology tools, some of which are now being used by the World Bank and client governments. european partner profiles Those interested in hosting a local Code for Resilience event are invited to send an to Please provide your name, title, organization, contact information, website, and a brief expression of interest.

33 60 61 The SCEWC is an innovative event that has become the world reference meeting point on Smart Cities. The world is changing. Cities need to be smarter than ever in order to develop economic and environmentally sustainable and to improve the quality of life for all. The Smart City Expo World Congress brings together leaders, specialists, managers and experts involved in Smart City initiatives worldwide. Its main objective is to create a meeting point for private businesses, public administration, entrepreneurs and research teams to share experiences, pool ideas, and network and inspire one another to continue developing ideas and initiatives to shape the future of cities. This event has become the industry leader in smart cities. Its position as the benchmark event gives it enormous convening power. The Smart City World Congress is built around the concept of a Smart Society for innovative and sustainable cities, integrating the underlying themes of Energy, Technology, Innovation, Smart Society, Collaborative City, Sustainable Built Environment, Governance, Economy, Mobility, and City Resilience & Security. The event is composed of an Exhibition Area, showcasing innovative companies and reference cities already implementing the smart city initiative, and the World Congress, which sees the most relevant speakers to explain and debate pioneering approaches. Helping cities to open their data and giving developers the tools they need, the CitySDK aims for a step change in how to deliver services in urban environments. CitySDK aims at creating open uniform interfaces between the cities and across the borders. SDK (Service Development Kit) refers to the tools that technology companies provide for their developers. The same concept is now introduced to cities to help them better utilize the know-how of the developer communities in developing city services. The Project focuses on three Pilot domains: Smart Participation, Smart Mobility and Smart Tourism. Solutions of these domains are tested in Helsinki, Amsterdam and Lisbon, and replicated in other European cities such as Barcelona, Istanbul, Lamia, Manchester and Rome. CitySDK offers great benefits for cities as well as developers. It is a collection of tools and knowledge that will allow easy and rapid development of transferable and interoperable Smart City services and applications. In CitySDK a set of European cities work together to produce common tools for the developers. Participating cities have in total a population of over 30 million inhabitants offering countless opportunities for innovative companies, entrepreneurs and developers to create applications and services that will improve the quality of life of the citizens.

34 62 63 co-creating sustainable neighbourhood services to address people s wishes, interests, and needs. MyN is a project funded by the European Commission aiming at the co-creation of sustainable neighbourhood services to address people s Wishes, Interests and Needs. MyNeighbourhood combines user driven open innovation methodologies, design thinking and innovative approaches for sustainable user engagement such as Gamification to create a sense of belonging and identity among neighbourhood dwellers and lead them to identify and creatively solve their own common problems. The ultimate aim of MyN is to kick-start a viral effect wherein neighbours and friends (within cities and across Europe) will use the open MyN Platform to reconnect with one another, share new ideas, create new ways of interacting and help make their daily lives smarter. Through the combination of three core components: Urban Living Lab, Neighbourhoods and Sustainable solutions, MyN aspires to start the development of a Human Smart City at the scale of Neighbourhood. a new wave of fostering innovation in cities and creating cutting-edge digital services Commons for Europe aims to identify the needs of public administrations and citizens, promote the creation of new applications that can provide innovative services and share the results openly among multiple European cities. The project aims to jointly create mobile and web applications that will enable improved services, reduced costs and greater transparency. To achieve these goals, the team led by ESADE Business School works with seven European cities and their public institutions to identify the types of new services that could benefit citizens and meet their needs through innovation. The Consortium has already set up a team of technical experts in new technologies to develop web and mobile applications that can offer this type of services. To achieve its objectives, the project intends to create an organisation called Code for Europe similar to Code for America in order to channel the efforts and imagination of promising young developers. The applications will be designed to operate in any of the seven cities involved in the programme, but they will also be made available to any other European city that expresses interest in them. Promoting collaboration among cities across Europe is crucial to prevent reinventing the wheel and to be able to implement multiple solutions for common problems. To accomplish these goals, Commons for Europe has developed Europe Commons, a new marketplace for civic innovation that features apps and digital services aimed at improving the lives of communities.
