Talk: What is shaping EMEA's Smart Cities

Description: Cities around the world are facing enormous challenges as urbanization accelerates. Cities already consume the majority of the world’s energy, water and food, while producing most of the global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and waste. And, with over 90% of the world’s urban areas located near coastlines, cities are also vulnerable to climate change hazards such as hurricanes, storms and rising sea levels.i In light of these challenges, many governments are exploring how to combine innovative policies, investments and technologies to mitigate these kinds of risks.

Smart city initiatives provide an ideal platform for change by enabling diverse stakeholders to collaborate together on solutions that can work, such as smart emergency management, resilient energy and infrastructure, intelligent transportation and more. Solutions like these require very tight, real-time interconnection between sensors collecting the data and the analytics engines calculating the response.
