Cities internationally are leveraging the power of data to harness the potential of urbanization and tackle challenges like urban sprawl, traffic congestion and environmental risks. Towards this endeavor, CPL helps cities by developing scalable and replicable tools that turn data into information, while supporting the establishment of data governance systems to mainstream evidence-driven spatial planning. It does so through the operationalization of a comprehensive Municipal Spatial Data Infrastructure (MSDI) framework. MSDI Roadmap developed collaboratively among the city agencies are operationalized using CPL’s four-pillar IPDS framework. IPDS pillars correspond to on Institutions (regulations, data governance protocols), People (competency, skill development), Data (quality, management) and Systems (geoportal). This master class demonstrates why a robust data governance framework is key to dismantling institutional silos and how innovations incubated within MSDI are aimed at equipping cities to adapt a nimble IPDS framework that meets their strengths and fosters integrated spatial planning and service delivery.
