Moscow is a global leader in urban solutions. Infrastructural development, new standards and strict requirements for environmental quality have become integral parts of urban policy, which in turn has helped grow tourism and entrepreneurship. Environmental quality is maintained thanks to an effective control system. Moscow's inspectors are responsible for all territory of the megacity and elements of its urban infrastructure. These include 40 thousand courtyards and playgrounds, more than 600 parks and gardens, 115,000 buildings and more than one million advertising and information billboards, as well as road infrastructure that totals some 5 thousand km in length. Moscow authorities have created a digital ecosystem to manage these properties, complete with special services for engaging with residents. Successfully assessing and improving the quality of urban environments require active participation from interested residents along with representatives of public organizations and businesses.
