    1. So far, smart city systems are being set up to appropriate and commercialize individual and community data. So far, communities are not waking up to the realization that a capacity they need is being stolen from them before they have it.”

        • Innovation in the creation and sustainability of social institutions acts predominantly at the local level.
        • In the Internet of Things, for those capacities to emerge in smart cities, communities need the capacity to own and analyse the data created that models what they are experiencing.
        • Local data needs to be seen as a common, pool resource.
        • Where that occurs, communities will have the capacity to learn or innovate their way forward.

        • Excerpt
          • To ensure choices concerning sharing principles in absolute environmental sustainability assessments (AESA) are deliberate,
            • there is a need for understanding the distributive justice theory underlying the sharing principles. -This study provides a framework for determining and communicating the distributive justice theories that underlie the choice of sharing principles in AESA

    1. Our concept of ESJ assumes fair sharing of responsibilities among different actors, ensuring that those who are most responsible and capable do the most. For example, the Earth Commission has developed principles for sharing responsibilities for cities and companie
      • Earth Commission has develop principles for sharing responsibilities for cities and companies.
      • Comment
        • This is implicitly a form of downscaling
    1. Yet few cities and companies currently have such targets.
      • Paraphrase
      • Few cities currently have science-based targets (SBT)
      • Only 22 of 500 top greenhouse gas emitting companies set targets in line with SBT (Bloomberg Terminal)
      • Only 110 of the top 200 cities with the highest emissions had "net zero" pledges aligned with Paris Agreement.
      • Numbers are lower or missing for biodversity or other ESBs.
      • Comment
      • Setting such SBTs for cities is in effect downscaling Planetary Boundaries.
      • Key Finding
        • This paper uses machine learning to overcome unavailable carbon footprints inventories of the Global South
        • which are usually hampered by:
          • lack of local urban emissions data,
          • reduced climate footprint, and
          • shortages in climate finance.
      • using these algorithms, the author estimates 24,110 cities' carbon footprints of the Global South

        • to provide a comprehensive analysis on a planetary scale,
        • while allocating responsibilities according to the cities' regions and sizes.

      • Highlights
        • Downscaling seven of nine = planetary boundaries indicators
          • to the city scale-level
          • for 62 major cities in the = Middle East North Africa (MENA) region
