Governments and municipalities can use ICTs and other technologies to build smarter and more sustainable cities for their citizens. Sustainable Smart City is an innovative city that uses ICTs to improve quality of life, efficiency of operations and urban services, and competitiveness, while meeting the needs of current and future generations in terms of economic, social, environmental and cultural aspects.More than half of the world's population lives today in cities. By 2050, about seven in 10 people will live in cities. Cities account for more than 70 per cent of global carbon emissions and 60 to 80 per cent of energy consumption. Rapid urbanization has led to additional challenges such as social inequalities, traffic congestion, water pollution and associated health issues.
