A smart city is a huge initiative. It takes massive planning, a network of the right skills and expertise, and careful execution. You can’t succeed without the right ecosystem of vendors, partners, suppliers and other stakeholders in place.
Urbanisation is a fact of modern life. Around half of the world’s population already lives in cities, generating more than 80per cent of global GDP, and urbanisation looks set to continue shaping the trajectory of global growth in unique ways.
Smart cities, with their technology-powered enhanced living and working environments, will be at the forefront of this transformation. Urban environments that leverage data and digital to create efficiencies, improve sustainability, drive economic development, and improve quality of life will become the new normal.
A smart region committed to the future
The Middle East and North Africa region (MENA) is recognised at a global level for being a hotbed of smart city projects.
