World : ISRAELI URBAN TECH-INTEGRATOR BRINGS SMART CITY MANAGEMENT TO EAST AFRICA

The first city in the region is slated to have a pilot innovation hub up and running by the end of the year.

As East Africa’s population centers continue in a trend of rapid expansion, one Israeli firm is teaming up with local partners to transform the region’s cities into hubs of innovation and smart municipal management.

Earlier this month, Israeli tech-integrator Smarter Urban & IT Strategies Ltd. (S.U.iT.S) signed a three-year agreement with the Entebbe-based Lake Victoria Regional Local Authorities and Counties Cooperation (LVRLACC) to facilitate cooperation on implementing urban technologies and smart-city infrastructure throughout the area. The agreement positions S.U.iT.S as LVRLACC’s prime innovation partner in the region, which includes 130 regional authorities across Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, with prospective membership from Burundi and Rwanda.
