Opportunities of Smart Cities

The main goal of a smart city is to use information and communication technology (ICT) to improve operational efficiency, while, optimising city functions and, consequently, promoting economic growth. Enhancing the quality of life for citizens, is one of the objectives of smart cities. The value lies in how technologies are used rather than simply how much technology is available.

Some of the characteristics of smart cities, include:

  • Data as a means to improve well-being and infrastructure
  • Effective and highly functional public transportation
  • Inclusive and efficient service delivery
  • Progressive city plans
  • Knowledge sharing between cities
  • Increased sustainability and resilience
  • Economic development
