Smart city landscape
Cities are increasingly becoming powerful engines of economic and sustainable growth, fuelled by an ever-increasing rate of specialized skills and intelligent community. ICTs can play a crucial role to make them more resilient, while also ensuring that governments, businesses, and citizens adapt to ensure that urban growth is done in a smart manner. Nevertheless, this urban and economic growth correlates with the significant sustainability challenges that our society faces at present. Here ICTs can contribute significantly by increasing environmental efficiency across industry sectors and enabling innovations that can support this objective.
