Workshop on Smart Cities: New Actors for a Transition towards Sustainable Future

As cities become more digital and connected than ever before, we need to capitalize on the opportunities that are brought about by the emergence of new technologies. Smart cities have to be well planned, designed, implemented and effectively managed with strategic policies and investment so that they serve as hubs of sustainability and economic prosperity. To do so, national and sub-national authorities need to establish enabling environments to encourage players from different sectors to make meaningful contributions. The workshop is expected to help cities in transition to seize the existing opportunities by learning from other cities in a similar condition, and to give guidance to policy makers in the region on their policy attempts towards sustainable future.

With the central/local authorities, representatives from NGOs, leaders of regional and community-based organizations, academic and training institutions and other local actors, who are working for a transition towards sustainable and smart cities within the Asia-Pacific region, this 4 days, workshop taking place in Jeju on May 12-15,  will discuss smart cities and cities in transition, challenges, innovation and good governance, to name a few.

Around the world, cities are facing #environmentalhazards like extreme #heat, #landslides, #pollution, and #flooding. To enhance #resilience to #climatechange impacts, cities must monitor and address these hazards. Earth observations can help cities understand and enhance urban resilience and make better decisions for planning, urban #greening, monitoring, and more.

This 3-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of the Earth Observations Toolkit for Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements, an online knowledge resource that shares ready-to-use Earth observation data sets and tools. These resources can be applied in policy areas that are important to resilient and sustainable cities. Such areas include sustainable urban planning, adequate #housing, access to #publictransport, and access to public spaces.
