DUQUE FRANCO, Isabel. Smart Cities on the Agenda of Planning and Governance in Latin American. Cuad. Geogr. Rev. Colomb. Geogr. [online]. 2021, vol.30, n.2, pp.280-296.  Epub 27-Ago-2021. ISSN 0121-215X.

This paper shows the translations and variations of the smart city model in Latin American cities. The smart city has emerged as a new urban model based on the use of technologies to respond to the varied and complex challenges facing contemporary cities, ranging from security to climate change. Based on the policy mobility approach, the network of actors committed to the diffusion of this urban model is identified and the inclusion of the smart city's narratives and projects in the debates and agendas of the planning and governance of the Latin American cities. The results reveal the prescriptive character of the model, its standardization, and the conformation of an "elite epistemic community" that has been decisive in the narrative and material production of the smart city in the region.

Highlights: this research article analyzes the variations and adaptations of smart cities' urban model in the Latin American context, based on the identification of projects considered intelligent, the narratives that support them, and the actors that promote them.

Palabras clave : global change; smart city; governance; policy mobility; urban planning.
