Rethink Cities

Thanks to the relentless determination of Jean Félix, Chair of the FIDIC-EFCA Sustainable Development Committee, the new international standard ISO 37101 Sustainable development of communities -Management systems -Requirements with guidance for resilience and smartness reflects the systemic approach, embedded in the 2013 FIDIC-EFCA white paper Rethink Cities, that calls for the holistic perspective supported by a Project/Programme Sustainability Logbook (see EFCA Bulletin, January 2016 PDF). The background to the standard has been presented (PDF) together with the ISO smart city standards strategy (PDFPDF).
