Jyoti Banerjee calls for a new approach to integrating together the impacts of cities, which enables a meaningful assessment of how a city creates value, who creates that value, and for whom that value is created.
Jyoti was speaking at a World Bank Public Sector Integrated reporting conference in Washington DC, where he used Milton Keynes as a case study of a city seeking to grow and create jobs, while facing significant economic, environmental and social constraints. Jyoti's analysis was based on the work that the Fronesys team is doing in MK:Smart, a Future Cities initiative funded by the Higher Education Funding Council of England (HEFCE) - Fronesys is a member of the MK:Smart consortium and Jyoti is a partner of the company.
The World Bank conference was an opportunity for public sector organizations from around the world to come together in a unique initiative designed to help them improve transparency and build trust through Integrated Reporting <IR>. The Public Sector Pioneer Network was launched at the conference by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA), and participants will be among the ‘first movers’ in <IR> in the public sector.
