AASCTF Smart City Financial Management Thematic Workshop Flyer
Cities and municipalities in the region face multiple pressing challenges; but limited resources, especially local government budgets, can hinder which issues can be resolved. Cities must be able to improve the efficiency of their revenue generation and diversify their funding sources to be able to have the means to finance urban development. Through a thematic workshop, the ASEAN Australia Smart Cities Trust Fund (AASCTF) will introduce the concept of smart city financial management (SCFM) and its importance and focus on the challenges and opportunities of SCFM. Workshop participants, particularly city officials, will learn how to develop a roadmap for baseline needs and improve their financial management, including generating stronger revenue growth.
