Guidance on Integrated Urban Hydrometeorological, Climate and Environment Services - Volume II
This Guidance Volume II: Demonstration Cities presents an overview of the demand for integrated urban services and the particular practices of the integrated urban services implementation. This Guidance builds on examples from 27 demonstration cities and provides details of the types of integrated urban services and their placement within distinct administrative frameworks. The details from these cities are abstracted to create a map that illustrates the level of integration between services providers and between services and the economic sectors. According to the degree of integration, demonstration cities fall into two main categories: one group represents urban service production by adding value through provision of basic available data
the other represents more mature integrated urban services that operationally deliver urban-specific services to a range of users - Paris, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore illustrated the greatest combined integration.
