City of Johannesburg’s smart city plan

“A smart city programme needs to be fully integrated into the Integrated​ Development Plan (IDP) of the city and become one with the IDP.

All stakeholders and communities should be involved and a smart city should be citizen-centric, reflecting the desires of citizens, and addressing the needs of the citizens.”
