National Smart Territories Plan

The fundamental objective of the National Plan for Smart Territories is to promote the application of technologies to the functioning of cities and especially rural areas, and to improve efficiency and economic, social and environmental development.

The smart cities strategy in Spain is in a moment of evolution that goes from the impact of technologies on public services to them being part of those public services. To this end, Spain has been working on standardization standards for Smart Cities and smart tourist destinations.
This plan highlights the importance of bringing intelligent management technologies to rural territories and small cities, which in the case of Spain are the majority. The trend in our country indicates an exponential increase in population in cities, so the depopulation of rural areas is one of the great challenges that arise.
