Jannat Maqbool - Smart Cities Council ANZ


Jannat Maqbool is the Country Director for New Zealand at Smart Cities Council ANZ, the region's leading authority in smart cities.

Our mission is clear - we envision a world where technology and data have been harnessed to create smart, sustainable cities and communities with high-quality living and high-quality jobs.

Our work is guided by the direction set within the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They are purpose-driven, global and both Australia and New Zealand have committed to advancing them. And at the SCC we firmly believe that technology and data can accelerate the outcomes expressed by the SDGs, helping our communities to thrive and prosper.

To help achieve these outcomes we do four things:

INFORM - Create knowledge resources that build capacity to act and invest.
EDUCATE - Deliver the Smart Cities Readiness Program, powered by Activator.
CONVENE - Bring our community together to engage in meaningful dialogue to advance best practice.
ADVOCATE - Help shape a policy environment that accelerates smart cities action and investment.

In 2020 we launch our new initiative - the Centre for Data Leadership. This initiative will provide support to organisations seeking to use data and insights to fuel prosperity, productivity and sustainability in our cities and regions.
