We identified and gathered 76 best practices in our Top 10 cities.
69 best practices were then considered from other cities that did not fall into our Top 10 cities ranking, but were marked as worth highlighting.
Best practices were then filtered in terms of quality and tagged as either existing or planned initiatives in the context of Dubai’s smart city plan.
Best practices were ranked in terms of relevance to Smart Dubai dimensions, their innovation level, to calculate overall rankings.
The best practices ranked at 4 and 5 in either category were identified as high potential best practices.
Methodology used to determine High Potential best Practices: Initiative does not exist today in Dubai; initiative is not planned as per the current-state report — or is planned but can be further enhanced, and initiative is ranked overall as 5 or 4.
Within the Top 10 cities, 46 best practices were identified. Of these, 39 were classified as high potential and opportunity for Dubai.
Other than the Top 10 cities, 18 additional best practices were identified, with 15 classified as high potential and opportunity for Dubai.
